Struts 2 execAndWait interceptor

execAndWait interceptor:

The execAndWait interceptor is used in case of long running action. It sends the user to an intermediate waiting page while action is executed.

Note: We have to put the meta refresh tag on the top of the waiting page so that waiting page will redirect to the required result page.
