>             Project: JBoss Seam
>          Issue Type: Feature Request
>          Components: JSF Controls
>            Reporter: jarkko Lietolahti
>         Assigned To: Norman Richards
>             Fix For: 2.1.0.GA
> <s:download value=#{FileManager.getFileById('10')" contentType="#{FileManager.contentType}" />
> We're going to create new (more general component) which allows the user to download a  file (any resource, Excel file, Document whatever). 
> The plan is to create a new UI component named UIDownload which has attributes like value, contentType (some more?).
> 1) UIDownload a backing bean (value) (is this still valid word in the seam world?) to generate the data ( allow byte[], OutputStreams ?). 
> 2) UIDownload creates DownloadResource which is stored in DownloadStore.
> 3) UIDownload generates HTML which redirects the browser to ResourceServlet 
> 4) ResourceServlet then uses DownloadResource to get hold of the data and the pushes it to browser
> The reason for this is that we're building portlets with Seam and it's impossible to "download" files from a portal environment without additional servlet and we think it's good idea to reuse existing stuff. 
> Patch coming soon (if we can make it work ;)
