Hi everyone
Plz reply..its urgent
I am trying to track progress of a database operation . and want to dislplay percentage progress on page asynchronously.

Process.jsp - In this i used javascript to call ajax function continuously which returns precentage progress.
My Code is :

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=euc-jp"><title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>
<jsp:useBean id="form1" scope="session" class="testing.HelloWorld"/>
<%
form1.check();
 %>
<body>

<script type="text/javascript">
var j=0;

function repeat()
{
var i=0;

while(i!=1)
{
i=getPercentage();
alert ("i = " + i);
}
}

function getPercentage()
{

var xmlhttp;
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
  {
  // code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
  xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
  }
else if (window.ActiveXObject)
  {
  // code for IE6, IE5
  xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
  }
else
  {
  alert("Your browser does not support XMLHTTP!");
  }
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function()
{
if(xmlhttp.readyState==4)
  {
 	document.myForm.time.value=xmlhttp.responseText;
 	if(document.myForm.time.value=="100")
 	{
 	alert("final reached");
 	j=1;
 	}
  }
}


xmlhttp.open("GET","test.jsp",true);
xmlhttp.send(null);
alert ("j=" + j);
return j;
}
</script>

<form name="myForm">
Name: <input type="text" name="username"  />
Time: <input type="text" size=100 name="time" />
<button onclick="repeat()">Track Progress</button>
</form>

</body>
</html>

So that when user clicks on track progress button, It calls a repeat () function which continuously calls getPercentage() function and break when i=1 (Value returned by getPercentage is 1 when it is 100 %).

But it is not functioning properly.
can some one tell what is problem.

code of test.jsp

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=UTF-8"
    pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>

<%@ page import="java.io.*" %>
<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>
<%
Connection con;
Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();
con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://msachan.desktop.amazon.com:3306/lm_v2","root","ro0t");

Statement st = con.createStatement();
String query = "SELECT lm_start_id ,lm_current_id ,lm_end_id  FROM mirror_statuses WHERE mirror_status_id=256 ";
ResultSet rs= st.executeQuery(query);
String op;
PrintWriter out1 = response.getWriter();
int percent;
String percenttext=null;

while(rs.next())
{
int sid = rs.getInt(1);
int cid = rs.getInt(2);
int eid = rs.getInt(3);
percent = (cid-sid+1)*100/(eid-sid+1);
percenttext=percent+"";
System.out.println("sid=" + sid + "cid = " + cid + "eid = " + eid)
System.out.println("Percentage completion is : " + percenttext);
out1.write(percenttext);
}
out1.close();
con.close();
%>

This may be a JSP producing this javascript, the error is, seemingly, in the javascript, however, so the question is better asked in the javascript forum.
