Problem in hand: i have to show a progress page after i call excel download servlet.

current behavior: from JSP -> call servlet(excel download) -> blank page shows up and close itself after process is over and user can download excel file. i want to show progress page in between instead of blank page.
excel servlet contenttype is set to "application/x-msexcel"

what i tried so far: Main(JSP) -> calls a dummy servlet -> dummy servlet redirects call to dummy JSP with progress image/text and creates a form and on submit calls -> Excel servlet
with above, every thing works but Progress page remains open even after download is done.

basic requirement is to show atleast a static message with image on progress page and close progress page once download is done.

Please suggest any other way to perform this task........ any help is appreciated.
