I have developed a web application where i am using GeoServer and OpenLayers. I have displayed some Layers over Google map in a ASP.Net Web Page. I want to know is there any Method or Script available in OpenLayers for downloading and saving shapefile (the shapefile which is displayed over Google map in Web page) from web interface.

Actually the user wants to download the shapefile from Web interface and open it in his Dektop GIS (ArcView) system.
