Create a loading screen for a swf file independent of the swf file

     I want to have a loading screen in my jsp page  before any swf file is loaded.There is the preloader in flash which allows to display a screen till the whole swf is loaded.

The code has to be in jsp page which will show a progress bar till the whole file (swf)is loaded in the memory.

I dont want to have the preloader in flash as we will have to make a lot of modifications in the existing files as the no. of files is large.

 I do not want to write any code inside the swf file.As the no. of swf files which require a loading screen are thousands so editing it for us is not possible.
