If there are any gurus out there paying attention, maybe you can help me out?
Lets say on a .jsp page, I have a button, which when clicked transfers the user to another .jsp page.
While on the server, this 2nd jsp file starts executing a server side method (which could take a long time, and have many algorithms and calculations).
My question is: would it be possible to somehow, while this long method is being executed, to relay messages back to a jsp page which would act as a logger. So, as the method is executing, the user would see a line by line log entry of the results/status of the method being run server side IN REAL TIME; not just a list of log entries returned AFTER the method is finished executing.
Tried searching google, but without knowing what terminology properly describes the functionality I'm looking for, looking through all the search results is quite frankly futile.
Anyone have any ideas?
Brainstorming quite welcome, and any input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
