What is the easiest way to pause execution of a program in java, without threads?

well, the title lies, it does actualy use threads, but the class does not have to extend java.lang.thread, or anything else. so here it is: Thread.currentThread().sleep(int); and now, a brief explanation, Thread.currentThread() returns an instance of the caller, as a thread, even when the caller isnt a thread, its a bagel, or an applet. you could just as easily use stop, or pause instead of sleep also.
