hi
1.what method should be written in the foll. code to stop the thread from executing instead of stop(),at xxxx.
so that the output is "before the start method" only.
public class Q1 extends Thread
{
public void run()
{System.out.println("before start method");
//this.xxxx
System.out.println("after start method");
}
public static void main(String args[])
{
Q1 q=new Q1();
q.start();
}
}

It depends on how you need to control things, Sun has a fairly good descussion on the depricated methods here : Java Thread Primitive Deprecation They also give suggestions on what to use instead of the deprecated methods, choose a statagy that best fits your application.
