Subject Re: HSSF - Generating large spreadsheets in streaming manner?
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2007 20:55:41 GMT
Accept state and follow Michael's suggestion (which is how we do it  
with our dynamic PPT, XLS and PDF) is to build the file and then  
serve the file's bytes. While the content is creating we show a  
progress with a continue working button, if that is clicked then we  
have a menu bar spot that tracks the progress and when the build  
thread has completed if the progress is still going the download  
proceeds automatically, if they have continued working then the menu  
bar updates to let them the document is ready and they can select it  
for download at their leisure.
