Topic: Displaying PDF forms on browser

We have a web application. On click of one of the tabs on the application we invoke a servlet which in turn uses Etymon PJ to generate PDF forms on the fly. The PJ PDF byte array (representing PDF form) is sent to the browser thru a JSP page. This form is loaded in another browser window. This works fine. The user is supposed to change the data in the form, submit the form and manually close the second browser window manually. Now if the user clicks on the same tab on the main window to generate another PDF form the second browser window opens up but still shows the first PDF form even if the servlet returns a different form in response the second time. Seems like the browser ignores the pdf byte array coming from the servlet/JSP and just displays the first PDF doc..Same thing happens for IE and NS

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for all the help.
