I work on a webapplication that opens in a frameset. The left pane is an applet which contains a JTree. The center frame is where information is displayed in JSPs.

Some actions are initiated from the JTree nodes, and some from forms/links/buttons in the JSP frame.

Lately we've added some functionality that results in lengthy downtime for the user. And between the IE status bar/spinning gloge, the IE cursor, and the applet, I've got no good way to disable the entire thing while an action is being performed.

I"m thinking I'd need to integrate ajax/strust in order to be able to do soemthing like this?

anyone else have an idea I may be missing?

thanks in advance!
Tom

If by "strust" you mean Struts, I don't see what that's going to do for you.

The Ajax methodologies might prove useful as the request processing can happen in the background without the need for page refreshing.

Yes, Struts - sorry.

ajax is only for web pages tho, is that right? Know any way to tie in the applet cursor/state?

Unfortunately the applet/JTree is necessary for some complex JDialogs we use, but it would make it a lot easier to have that tree be HTML-based too.
