Simulating JProgressBar progress

I have an applet that I'm writing for a demo. I have a GUI and am hardcoding some functionality to make it appear for the client that my applet is doing what it will eventually do dynamically.
I have a JProgressBar that I want to "update" while the client is waiting for something to happen. I understand how to set the value of the JProgressBar.
My problem is how to make the applet wait for a specified amount of time between setting the value of the JProgressBar. Just to simulate the user's wait time to show functionality.
How can I do this? Most of what I've read has to do with threads and updating which is quite useful when I actually do the real applet, but this is just a demo and I don't want to go into all that just to make the system wait for a second or two.
Thanks.

One of the first examples in chapter 13 here: http://www.spindoczine.com/sbe involves a JProgressBar that takes a few seconds to complete.. i think this will have what you are looking for

I got the demo working fine, but what's the procedure if you're using a JPanel in a JApplet instead of a JFrame in an application?
Thanks,
April
