AsyncTask class in Java?

The AsyncTask class in Android is a clean and simple way to create and handle simple threads. Is there a similar class in JAVA? I haven't found anything quite like that...
Thanks,

AsyncTask does more than that. Not only does it run in a background thread, but it also has facilities to post updates in the UI thread. SwingWorker would indeed be a closer approximation in Java.
