        Description copied from class: Task
        This is the method that will be called to do the work

        Note: The run(TaskMonitor) method should not make any calls directly on Swing components, as these calls are not thread safe. Place Swing calls in a Runnable, then call SystemUtilities.runSwingLater(Runnable) or SystemUtilities.runSwingNow(Runnable)to schedule the Runnable inside of the AWT Event Thread.
