You are right, stop has been deprecated in Java 1.2. According to Bill Brogden's Java 2 Exam Cram (page 177, in the Java Threads Chapter under "Some Deprecated Methods") "...The use of these mehtods should not appear in the test." This statement was used in reference to the suspend, resume, and stop methods of the Thread class.
