Hi,
does anybody know how to implement a site loader? I am sure you've seen one: on Expedia.com when you submit your search the page first shows you "please wait" (or something like that) and then redirects you to the results page.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
Alex

We can do that using client side script!!
After submitting a form, servlet throws Please wait page. This page contains a javascript(document.location=<url with submitted form parameters> ) to do the actual form submission.
This approach have some other advantages.
We can Submit all the forms to one servelt(it simply generates please wait screen) and it will determines dynamically the actaul destination.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
