How can dead thread be restarted in Java?

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

A thread goes through various stages in its lifecycle. For example, a thread is born, started, runs, and then dies.

  • New − A new thread begins its life cycle in the new state. It remains in this state until the program starts the thread. It is also referred to as a born thread.

  • Runnable − After a newly born thread is started, the thread becomes runnable. A thread in this state is considered to be executing its task.

  • Waiting − Sometimes, a thread transitions to the waiting state while the thread waits for another thread to perform a task. A thread transitions back to the runnable state only when another thread signals the waiting thread to continue executing.

  • Timed Waiting − A runnable thread can enter the timed waiting state for a specified interval of time. A thread in this state transitions back to the runnable state when that time interval expires or when the event it is waiting for occurs.

  • Terminated (Dead) − A runnable thread enters the terminated state when it completes its task or otherwise terminates.

Once a thread enters dead state it cannot be restarted.
