I need to get access to the HttpServletResponse so I can pass it to a view (which happens to be Velocity) from an Action in a SWF. What is the best way of doing that? I'm currently subclassing AbstractAction. Is there a different Action class I should be using?
BTW, the whole point of this exercise is to be able to set the contentType to excel in the view.
I'm also looking into an alternative way of getting to the HttpServletResponse in Velocity using Velocity methods (naturally, I'm asking the Velocity guys and gals on their mailing list).
