Subject Re: Returning raw data from an action
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2003 20:12:26 GMT
modified slightly:

    // Now write the actual content type and data
    JspWriter stream = response.getWriter();
    ... write out the csv ...

    // Return null to tell Struts the response is complete
    return (null);
