Progressive Web Page update
Posted on 2004-04-09
I am currently building a site using JSP and I am wondering if there is a convenient way to display updates to users as they happen.
Essentially, some of the processes are computationally intensive (encryption and the like) and I would like to update the user as to where the process is up to. So, rather than - say - 10 different pages for each of the stages, if there were 10 bullet points in a page, I would like to show each one when the relevant Java code returns from its computation. Is it possible to do this? If so, how?
Any help would be really appreciated.
