Use java script for it see following code.

you can also do it in recursion. just a example you can modify it accordingly. but if you want to use it in web. use JavaScript as most of the downloading site use java script
		try{
		int i=10;
		
		while(i>=0){
			System.out.print(i);
			i=i-1;
			Thread.sleep(1000);
			
		}
		
		System.out.print("Done");
		}catch(Exception e){
			e.printStackTrace();
			
		}
