My requirement is to create a website in which any number of user can login and click on a button. The task inside that button click will be a long running process (May take hours or days to finish the task). User can logout from the website and can login occasionally to check the status of the task.Is it good to use the idea in Simulate a Windows Service using ASP.NET to run scheduled jobs[^] article. Please give some suggestion on this.

Okay you're talking about somewhat like Asynchronous Task.
First look at on MSDN[^]
and then see this blog[^].

Thanks for the solution.. but in my scenario, the task is extracting huge amount of data. This may take 2-3 days to finish.. since its a website the user can close the site in the browser(so that there wont be any requst comming) and check after some days to know the status. similarly there can be hundreds of users. Can you please suggest a solution.
