Threading in ABAP?

I have a scenario (Order taking) where the execution logic takes considerable time to finish the processing. As a result, the end user who is using the web application has to wait for at-least 10 minutes till the processing is complete.

In the UI (WebDynpro) until the response comes back, the hour glass / sand timer (wheel) keeps coming and hence the user cannot do anything but has to wait till the processing is complete. I would like to know if there is a possibility to develop a function module in ABAP that would trigger a new process internally which will run in the background and still the Function Module can return back certain message like "Your order number XXXXXX X has been submitted and is getting processed. Please check the status of it after 10 minutes". May be something similar to threading in Java?
