Pause Feature

Hello,

I have a Swing GUI that uses a large input file to make series of web service calls, I would like to add 'Pause' and 'Continue' capability to my GUI.
I have this logic to start the batch job inside a Worker Thread, Can someone please guide me as to how i can bring this Pause and Continue feature into my program.
What i am looking for is how to pause the current execution on clicking a button and resume the execution on a similar event.

Please advice.

Thanks,
Kasi

One way of doing it would be to define a boolean which should be toggled on pause/continue.
After each web service call, check this boolean and process accordingly.
