Hi, I am uploading a file using commons file-upload. I will upload the file on the server, do some processing on the file data, persist into database and then send a response back to user with file uploaded successfully with or without errors. If error occurs i need to delete the file from the server and remove some rows from the database.
While uploading and processing the file on the server i need to show the user some modal dialog box which will give the progress bar or at least a gif image with "Processing..." kind of text. The important point, I need to show the dialog while Uploading and PROCESSING the file. I also need to timeout the upload request if uploading and processing takes more than 3 mins.
I am not sure how can i send a request on the server still show some dialog on client side while processing is going on server? Any code will definitely help...
Thanks a lot for the quick reply... I think i am looking for this kind approach only but i need to show the main window too and on top of it i need to show this dialog (of maybe a small window) saying processing... and when this small window is open you should not able to go to the main window (modal functionality). Can this can also be achieved? Else i will use your approach showing an intermediate page...
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
