Create background thread from within iView code?


I want to create a thread that will do some work in the background as a result of an iView event. I want the iView doProcessBeforeOut to return immediately, but have a thread running in the background to update some data. Is it Ok to create standard Java threads in this case, or is there a portal service I should use? I found documentation on the J2EE Engine's TimeoutManager, but I cannot figure out how to use that from within an iView.
