i want to stream a pdf report to a page, but some how i got funny character when streaming. below is the code i wrote. i got this works at normal java application, but not in portlet.

FacesContext ctx=FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
String fullPath = getReportPath(reportName);
HttpServletResponse response=(HttpServletResponse)ctx.getExternalContext().getResponse();
response.addHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename="+reportName+".pdf");
JasperPrint jasperPrint=JasperFillManager.fillReport(fullPath, parameters, new JRBeanCollectionDataSource(list));
JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfStream(jasperPrint, response.getOutputStream());

the result i got is 
%PDF-1.4 %âãÏÓ 4 0 obj <>stream xœ¥˜ÉnÛ0†ïz

However, if i use 
i got the pdf nicely, but it save into my local, which does not serve my need.

So what is the correct way to stream a pdf? i want to do it like a popup message to let me download the pdf.

Thanks in advance.
