    Help Required : Flex 4 + Export to Excel (JAVA)

    Arsohoh Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I need a optimized idea on the following topic and my question is as follows, I have an application where in a user can export the data from the UI , once user clicks the export button we make a backend call which gets the data from DB and constructs an excel sheet using the Apache POI (java API). Now the issue is , since there is a possibility that the user can export a huge record set and the request leaves the flex tier and in java layer the user is clueless if he is waiting for good or the request is stale.

       

      How in Flex 4/4.5, can i intimate the user that the process is still in progress (say make a background call and keep updating the user that its in progress - live feed etc.,)

       

      Examples are appreciated.

       

      Thanks.
