how to display waiting/loading messages until data is displayed to the user in jsp?

iam doing some search kind of application in jsp...
when the user clicks the search button, data will be retrieved from the database and displayed to the user..
there is some time delay while retrieving data from database and showing it to the user.
i want to show some message for example "Data Loading..." message to the user in the time delay..
Can any one suggest me some ideas of doing it...

Note: everything is in jsp's, once search button is click data will be send to another jsp which will retrieve data and show it to the user..

Hi Abhishek,
When the user clicks the search button take him to a jsp page which shows some message like "Please wait while we are searching.." in this page forward the search request to the servlet, until the search is finished the user will see the wait message.

Hope this helps.
