      Hi,

      I am facing a weird problem with my xls files when opened thru Jboss in IE 6.

      I have a JSP deployed on JBOSS 4.0.4.CR2 which has links to a pdf file and a xls file.

      The pdf file opens up normally when the link is clicked on, but when the xls link is clicked it displays some Binary characters in IE6 instead of opening the xls file correctly.

      The code of my jsp is as follows:
      Code:

      ***********************************************************
      <%
      response.setHeader("Pragma", "public");
      response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "must-revalidate");
      response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel");
      response.setHeader("Content-Disposition","attachment; filename=July2006.xls");

      %>

      July2006.xls


      ***********************************************************
      i have included the MIME Mapping in server/default/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/conf/web.xml
      <mime-mapping>
      xls
      <mime-type>application/vnd.ms-excel</mime-type>
      </mime-mapping>

      The same code works fine when run the application in WEBSPHERE but not in JBOSS.
