WaitPage Framework
An article describing a framework which encapsulates a generic method of allowing 'wait pages' in ASP.NET applications, when a long-running task (such as credit card validation, etc) needs to be performed on request from the user. The article explains, by use of a worked example, how the framework can be used, and also provides a detailed explanation of how everything works behind the scenes.
