    Default DIRECTING TEXT OUTPUT AT THE LOCAL MACHINE

    My program is hosted in linux server. Clients use WinXP. I've a method which processes data at the server side and generates a text output.
    This text file is presently being created in the server itself.

    Is there a way to redirect this output to the client machine harddisk? preferably desktop?

    Thanks in advance.

    How do the server and client communicate? HTTP?
    Can the server send the file to the client as a response to a client request?
    It will be up to the client code to write the file where it wants it to go.

    Do you want to move the whole file to client or only the text?

    @ 777 --

    Sorry for the belated response. Yes. I would like the whole file to be shown at the client console and saved there. I tried invoking wordpad. Works fine in some machines. But on some other, the formatting went for a six. Is it possible to load this text file in a jsp?
