allyou wantis please read our naming policy and adjust your displayed name accordingly, thank you.
The running variable should have been declared volatile.

Can't you use interrupt() method?
Having stopWork() is great but what if this is not ur thread(does not have the method) or the thread is in sleep/wait mode, or waiting for IO (for example Socket s =server.accept())

right.

both good suggestions, it seems to me!

stefan offers a nice, healthy-looking thread template, and yaroslav offers good advice about making provisions for (un)intended exit/shutdown

(i.e. "try" the 'do something' loop, "catch" InterruptedException, and possibly execute a "finally" block for clean shut-down)
