Non Struts App -> Struts App - use splash screen and auto forward?

Hi there all,

I have two applications; one is a non-struts application that will call my (new) struts application, passing the parameters in via the url:

e.g. http:/wibble.com/app/displayAccount?user=1234&account=123456789

I'd like to display a "loading..." jsp page that immediately calls an Action (needs to use the passed parameters), which will then go off to a back end to retrieve the account information, before finally forwarding to the (success) AccountDetails.jsp

Essentially, I think I need to pull out the parameters passed in and add to the session/request, display the loading jsp, before doing some kind of auto-submit to the next form.

However, I'm a struts novice, so I'd be really grateful for some help as to how I could achieve this (whilst adhering to any best practises also).

Many thanks,

Pete.
