Thanks for the response. Actually what my goal is that I have a aspx web page where on click of a button I am doing some processing which involves a huge amount of data so it takes a lot of time for the page to process.After the processing is over I give a message on the page saying "The data is saved". <BR>But since this takes a lot of time(processing) and the user has to wait for long time. So I am thinking on redirecting him to another page meanwhile the processing will be done in the background. How can i achieve this. Is it threading? Then any good related article or sample code would be helpful. <BR>Thank you.
exactly as I thought. you need to look into Message Queueing.<BR><BR>I'm doing a classic ASP version of a mass-mail application for a client now - basically the web front end just adds a 'job' to the queue with necessary parameters, then a background application does the actual processing asynchronously.<BR><BR>the .NET docs ought to have something to say about MSMQ - I'll check this myself too. You could also make your own 'queue' with a database with a bit of thought - then make the background app or service to react to this queue.<BR><BR>j<BR>http://rtfm.atrax.co.uk/
