My question has to do with coding a progress bar using swing.
I have looked in several sources and all that I have learned so far is that it must be done using threads, but I am having a problem tying the thread(s) together with the JProgress Bar and the data. What is the best way to accomplish this task.

Maybe take a look at the JProgressBar examples in chapter 13 here:
