What is the Thread class in Java?
The java.lang.Thread class is a thread of execution in a program. The Java Virtual Machine allows an application to have multiple threads of execution running concurrently. Following are the important points about Thread −
- Every thread has a priority. Threads with higher priority are executed in preference to threads with lower priority.
- Each thread may or may not also be marked as a daemon.
There are two ways to create a new thread of execution.
- One is to declare a class to be a subclass of Thread.
- Another way to create a thread is to declare a class that implements the Runnable interface.
