Currently, when I generate PDFs using Seam PDF, they either a) open in the same browser window by default, or b) open in a new window, if I use s:link with target="_blank". What I'm missing (compared to the old way of generating PDFs using Jasper - not that I miss Jasper by any amount) is the ability to force a save dialog to pop up when a PDF is requested, by setting "content-disposition: attachment" in the response.

Now, my question is, was this ever addressed by Seam? Is it possible to force a save dialog when generating PDF using Seam PDF?

Alternatively, is it possible to get the generated PDF as a byte[] in the code - so that I would output it manually, setting the content-disposition on the way?

Thanks a lot,
