I have this website where when a user comes in, a lot of files get downloaded (.class ).
It takes a while, and as of now there is no visual indication to the user indicating the status of download.
As a matter of fact, the user doesnt even that there is something being downloaded in the background.
So, what they see is a browser window that doesnt do a whole lot.
I would like to show a progress bar kinda thing. I figured out how to show a progress bar(thanks to javaranch search feature).
However, from what I have seen, the progress bar is being displayed as an applet, which means the progress bar
won't show up on IE 6 by default. I can't expect all of my users to have JRE. How can I get around this.
