    Java - Thread

    Thread in Java

    What is Thread?

    Thread is a class, an independent path of execution within a program. A thread execute the provided code(Task) in new process, so the thread run concurrently with your program. 
    Usually thread is use for connectivity(i.e. Networking, Internet, Bluetooth), timer, i/o operation.
    It can be extends with your program, and a run method must be override, and that override method run when thread starts.
    Thread class is define in:  java.lang.Thread

    When thread object is made then a runnable object must pass inside thread object. I discuss runnable object in next lesson.

    Example:

    class ThreadTest extends Thread
    {
         public void run()
         {
               System.out.println("Thread starts...");
         }
       
         public static void main(String args[])
         {
              ThreadTest t=new ThreadTest();
              t.start();
         }
    }
