closing a window

I have a pop up window with two buttons. The ok will submit to a process page which will do  some server side processing. Once this has been completed, How can I close the popup window?

Non-AJAX way
============

When you hit submit, the control will go to the server and your browser will wait for
a response. Until that is returned, you'll see a blank page. You can execute closing
by returning a "text/javascript" content-type response from the server, containing
the following code:

"<script type=\"text/javascript\">self.close();</script>"

AJAX way
========
AJAX being asynchronous, you can continue to display the page even after the submit
has been clicked. In the background, the server processes and once it returns the
response, a callback handler takes the response and executes it.

Sounds like a web-application and sounds like the same pop-up window needs to be notified by the server once it has finished the processing. Since this might be asynchronous, did you try AJAX?
