Java Thread By Extending Thread Class

  • A thread can be created in java by extending Thread class, where you must override run() method.
  • Call start() method to start executing the thread object.

Thread Sample Code

Code:
package com.myjava.threads;

class MySmpThread extends Thread{
    public static int myCount = 0;
    public void run(){
        while(MySmpThread.myCount <= 10){
            try{
                System.out.println("Expl Thread: "+(++MySmpThread.myCount));
                Thread.sleep(100);
            } catch (InterruptedException iex) {
                System.out.println("Exception in thread: "+iex.getMessage());
            }
        }
    }
}
public class RunThread {
    public static void main(String a[]){
        System.out.println("Starting Main Thread...");
        MySmpThread mst = new MySmpThread();
        mst.start();
        while(MySmpThread.myCount <= 10){
            try{
                System.out.println("Main Thread: "+(++MySmpThread.myCount));
                Thread.sleep(100);
            } catch (InterruptedException iex){
                System.out.println("Exception in main thread: "+iex.getMessage());
            }
        }
        System.out.println("End of Main Thread...");
    }
}

Example Output

Starting Main Thread...
Main Thread: 1
Expl Thread: 2
Expl Thread: 3
Main Thread: 4
Expl Thread: 5
Main Thread: 5
Expl Thread: 6
Main Thread: 7
Main Thread: 8
Expl Thread: 9
Expl Thread: 11
Main Thread: 10
End of Main Thread...

Difference between super() and this()
super() is used to call super class constructor, whereas this() used to call constructors in the same class, means to call parameterized constructors.

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
