Displaying Loading gif or waiting message until servlet loads

I have a application that invokes a servlet through the URL

"http://server:port/context-root/myservlet"
The servlet then calls the Java Class which returns the query result back to servlet.The servlet then renders the data to the user through a JSP page(response.redirect)

Now it hapens so, when all this happens Page Cannot be displayed is rendered to the useruntil the JSP page is ready to show the data.

How can I show a loading gif or a messgae as soon as the servlet is invoked until the JSP page is loaded with all the required data:

NOTE: As mentioned above, I am first calling the servlet, then Java Class, then JSP.

You can't. That has to happen on the client.
