Hi all

I have a scenario where i click a button from a jsp which results in DB operation(This method is called from my servlet) and this operation may take some time.In this situation i wont be able to show the user about the status of the operation.(Now whats happening is the user wont be shown anything till the operation is complete)

Now what i need is ,i want to show the user a page showing that the operation is in progress and as soon as the operation is complete i need to show the proper page

How can i achieve this ??

Not really a Tomcat-specific question is it?

Search through the JSP and Servlet forums for previous discussions and you will find lots of good info.
