Problem in receiving compressed data.

I am facing problem in receiving the data compressed data from a servlet running on Tomcat. The client is in VisualC++. I am not sure if there is a problem in curl library or there is something i am doing wrong.

On the server I am doing the following,
       response.setHeader("Content-Encoding", "gzip");

       out = new PrintWriter(new GZIPOutputStream(response.getOutputStream()), false);

       out.println("XML Data to be compressed");

On the client, the code is
    SetWebFormHeaders_b ("Accept-Encoding", "gzip");
    SetWebFormHeaders_b ("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
    --- /*attaching the callback finctions
    retCC = curl_easy_perform(m_curl);

    At this point if I see the transmitted data from server, no data is transmitted.

Please let me know how to resolve this problem.
