This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I am trying to kick-off a process from a web page. I want the browser to immediately return a screen that says the process has been initiated. I don't want it to have to wait for the process to end before returning a screen to the user. So how do I do this? When the user clicks the submit button, a void method is called in my servlet. I set up my return html file name and try to flush that back to the browser. Then I call a separate class to begin my process. Obviously this isn't working as I thought it would. Instead of returning the html screen immediately, it sits there and waits for the process to end. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
