What can cause a thread to stop executing?
1) The program exits via a call to System.exit(0);
2) Another thread is given a higher priority
3) A call to the thread's stop method.
4) A call to the halt method of the Thread class
Q 2: When another thread is given a higher priority, will a thread
stop or move into a ready to run state.
kindly clarify.

Thanks,
kannan.

Hi partner,
Thread Cant be stopped by just giving the higher priority to another thread.
Ya it will be added in the ready state again.
Thread Schedular basically determines the priorities.

for the exams the ans to ur Qs is
1) The program exits via a call to System.exit(0);--true
2) Another thread is given a higher priority --true
3) A call to the thread's stop method.--true
4) A call to the halt method of the Thread class--false
(coz there is no method as halt in java)

also, the answer to your second question is "no"
since we do not know the compiler personally
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
