How do I add a response Header?

I figured out, that to close a Jira dialog I would need to make the response header "X-Atlassian-Dialog-Control:DONE" beeing returned somehow.

I already tried to do it via my java class by writing:

HttpServletResponse response = ServletActionContext.getResponse();
response.addHeader("X-Atlassian-Dialog-Control", "X-Atlassian-Dialog-Control:DONE"); //and many variations of this
response.sendRedirect("[URL to issue]");


And when that didn't work I tried to add a Header into the .vm file :

<% Response.AddHeader "X-Atlassian-Dialog-Control:DONE","dialogControl" %>

something like this, again I tried multiple Variations.

The dialog still won't close.

Thanks in advance.

Can you just use Chrome's Dev tools to inspect the dialog and find out which parent DOM element the dialog is and just use jQuery to hide() it?

Really, I don't know why you'd want to be rendering what appears to be a servlet or action response inside the dialog. It's far easier to work with AUI dialogs and soy templates + REST I find.
