Offload a process RRS feed

    We have a need to be able to create and upload accounting transactions to a separate system.  I can do this in a separate code page but it does not return control to the web user until the whole process is done.  I was wondering if an HTTPHandler or ??? might be better for this kind of thing.  My biggest concern is that I need some verification that the process was done.  Can anyone give me some thoughts based on their experience?  Thank you.

    There is a way to do this with the UpdatePanel.  Basically your page button fires off a task that only updates a region of your page, not the whole thing.  When the task completes, your updatepanel refreshes.

    The problem is that the user will close the page well before the processing is done.  That is why I need to off-load it somehow.  Also, this can be initiated in several pages.
