I use the following extension on WAComponent,

downloadBytes: bytes mime: mime filename: filename
 ^self session returnResponse: (WADocumentHandler
                                  document: bytes
                                  mimeType: mime
                                  fileName: filename) response

which is then called from a callback, say

html anchor
  callback: [self
              downloadBytes: self asCSV
              mime: 'text/csv'
              filename: 'export.csv'].

Hope this helps,
