Hi All,
I have a servlet that reads cookies(added by another previous servlets), adds cookies, reads from Database tables and outputs data as html page.
The output comes as expected, but the problem is with the progress bar of the browser, it indicates that the page to be loaded is not loaded yet, although it is already completly loaded!!!!
Note: i use Internet Explorer browser version 6.0
I realy need to know what is the reason for this and how it will be solved...
Any comment will be very helpful...
Thanx in advance...

Are you sure that your doGet() or doPost() method actually returns? The connection is actually closed at that time and the only reason I can see - a priori - for the progress bar to react like this is that the connection to the server is actually still opened...

I use the service method...
and i close the PrintWriter instance (that is used for printing the html page tags) using the close method,close it after drawing the html page tags...
I don't know if this is what you meant!!!!

Yes, this is what I wanted to verify. If the code is short enough or if you can reproduce the problem in a short similar example, it would be worth posting.

If you can't reproduce the problem with a short similar example, we at least know that the problem is more likely with the code, not with the servlet environment.

What I would do is be sure that the PrintWriter.close() is indeed invoked. Maybe is the servlet stuck "just before" that line is executed... For example, I can think about a loop that doesn't end correctly, or other...
