Wow! That will be cool Kyle, will be looking fwd to that implementation! Mark,thanks for the suggestion, but in the current scenario we have to display the report on the web page itself.We are using a 3rd party reporting tool called web focus to generate reports.This tool has a servlet interface with which we interact to generate reports. So the reports have to be shown on the browser itself,but the user should have the option to surf other links on the site and when the report is done(in the background) it should pop up for him. MDB's may be a good option but then again using EJB's is currently ruled out. Am using the thread implementation only,will post up the code once im done.
Thanks guys!Appreciate the help
