    File Downloading is not working for me

    Manish Prajapati Newbie
      Hi All,
      I want to create file downloading functionality for that i have written following code.It shows me the dialogue but if i open or save and open it gives me "format error:not a pdf or corrupted".

      Following is my code written to achieve the file downloading goal.

      public void download(){
                FacesContext facesContext = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
                HttpServletResponse response = (HttpServletResponse) facesContext
                Document document=new Document();
                //HttpServletResponse response = (HttpServletResponse)extCtx.getResponse();
                      response.addHeader("Content-disposition", "attachment; filename=\"CoverPage.pdf\"");
                try {
                     ServletOutputStream serveltOutputStream = response.getOutputStream();
                     PdfWriter pdfWriter=PdfWriter.getInstance(document,serveltOutputStream);
                     document.add(new Paragraph("A picture of my dog: otsoe.jpg"));
                } catch(Exception e) {
                     //log.error("\nFailure : " + e.toString() + "\n");
                //return null;

      Can anybody tell me what's wrong with my code or how i can achieve the goal of file downloading?

      Thanks a lot in advance.
