I am writing jsp to export data in excel format to user. An excel could be recieved on the cient side.
However, since there's large amount of data, and I don't want to keep it in the server memory and write them at the end. I try to divide them and write serveral times. However, each extra write(..) will cause an extra new lines at the top of the excel worksheet and then the extra data is placed after these new lines. Does anyone know the reasons?
The code is something like this:
response.setHeader("Content-disposition","attachment;filename=DocuShareSearch.xls"); response.setHeader("Content-Type", "application/octet-stream"); responseContent ="<table><tr><td>12131</td></tr>......."; byte responseByte1 = responseContent.getBytes("utf-16"); outputStream.write(responseByte1, 0, responseByte1.length ); responseContent =".....<tr><td>12131</td></tr></table>"; byte responseByte2 = responseContent.getBytes("utf-16"); outputStream.write(responseByte2, 0, responseByte2.length ); outputStream.close();
