Progress bar on download an upload

Hey all.

I'm developing a webpage that allows users to upload and download files.
To implement uploading I'm using an Apache library (FileUpload), and I haven't done the download bit yet (maybe I can manage to do it with an OutputStream...).

The thing is, I would like to show a custom progress bar when a file is being uploaded or downloaded. An example of that is the box.net website (www.box.net), which is a very well done page, by the way.

Is there a way to do that?

Cheers

Progress bar for uploads is a norm but for downloads its not needed at all.

Please search the same forum or JSP forum with the term "progress bar" you would definitely get adequate results.
