Intermediate loading page

Hi all,
I have a requirement.
I am doing a reports module.
In the first jsp of this module, the user will select from the form what are the reports he wants. After selection he will submit the form.
Once submitted, my second jsp retrieves the data from the database calculates the reports and displays it to the user. But this process is taking some time.
Hence I would like to add an intermediate loading page i.e..say "Please wait... loading...." or something like this during the process time. Once the process is over it should go to the display jsp
This intermediate loading page should not hit database(performance issues) and also it should have the ability to go back to the previous page when the browser back button is pressed.
Has anybody done this before... please let me know how i should do this?
Thanks in Advance
