I show PDF's on my Website via php/html. For security reasons I don't want to publish the filename/-path. So I stream the pdf file Content to the browser which works fine It's similar to this example:
I want to do the same with B4J. With fx.showexternaldocument you will provide the complete path (which I don't want). Ok, I could copy the pdf to a temp file to show it. So what is the best way to do so? (exactly: How do I "call" the browser with a stream (not file path) or is it better to start f.e. Acrobat Reader directly (as I know it supports streams).
$data = file_get_contents("http://bar.com/foo.pdf"); header("Content-type: application/octet-stream"); header("Content-disposition: attachment;filename=YOURFILE.pdf"); echo $data;
