  • getContentType() : This method is used when you want to check the content type is using to response.
  • getWriter() : This method gives an object of PrintWriter class through which the text is send to the client.

import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

public class ServletResponseMethod extends HttpServlet {
private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
PrintWriter out= response.getWriter();
String cnt= response.getContentType();
out.println("Content Type = "+cnt);
int bs= response.getBufferSize();
out.println("<br>BufferSize= "+bs);
String chen= response.getCharacterEncoding();
out.println("<br>Charset = "+chen);
boolean bol= response.isCommitted();
out.println("<br>Is committed = "+bol);
