Sun's on-line documentation (as well as every book I've read on the subject) say that the Thread methods "stop", "suspend" and "resume" are deprecated and should not be used under any circumstances.
However, I seem to keep getting questions on these methods on mock exams. Does anyone know if they are worth studying (at least for the certification exam if not for use in day-to-day code writing)?
