Servlet File Download dialog problem (IE6,Adobe 6.0)

Servlet File Download dialog problem (IE6,Adobe 6.0)

I'm new to FOP.  I'm trying to dynamically create a PDF from a struts web
application.  In my action bean I execute a JSP URL that returns the FOP xml.
I take the return stream and place it into a reader and then pass it to
renderFO method from the example servlet.

This seems to work like I want it to.  However, I'm running into an issue with
IE.  Whenever I input the URL for my action bean, the first time through I get
the "File Download window".  The file type is "Adobe Acrobat Control for
ActiveX".  If I cancel and then resubmit the very same URL, the PDF is
displayed.

I have read the FAQ and several messages about problems with IE but have not
run across my exact problem.  In them they say to include a dummy.pdf at the
end of the URL.  And to include a PDF extension as part of the base URL.  I
have done both but still have the issue.

I have tried various URLs including:

....IncidentPDFPath.do?incidentSID=123245&x=dummy.pdf
....IncidentPDFPath.pdf?incidentSID=123245&x=dummy.pdf

With the same results.

The funny thing is the second time I submit the URL from the browser it works.
If I open a new browser and submit it I get the "File Download" window again
the first time.  The second time from the same browser the PDF is displayed.

Thanks for any help.
