Subject RE: Include response in the JSP page
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2003 18:03:46 GMT
	You probably don't want to set a mime type for *.do, because all
your actions might have different types.  However, you _can_ use the
response methods to set the content type, write to the response, and return
a null forward.

	If you are trying to display a dynamicly generated image, I would
personally eschew the <jsp:include />  as that will likely put the binary in
your page. Instead, use an image pointing at the action as the source:

<html:img src="/" /> 

	Which should cause the browser to request the image and render it
