Animation of startup process

Registered by Knut Staring on 2009-03-02

The initial login takes quite a lot of time on weak machines with big databases. The user should be given some indication of the progress. Gmail progress bar - maybe just a picture every 5 secs.

Whiteboard

For v2.0.1 we will be showing just an indeterminate animation... I am planning on adding DWR's reverse-ajax features and get 'real' updates for the progress bar from the servlet. Since it requires a major design change, targeting 2.0.3 for a determinate progress bar.

Using jQuery-UI's progress bar and hence will be adding the required libraries from jquery-ui 1.7

(?)
