This is not true. Daemon threads are killed once all the user threads have exited.
Check out the code example below. This example basically creates a daemon thread which is in a while(true) loop to print out "in Daemon thread". If Daemon threads

keep on running even when we are delieberately killing the execution of main thread

then this program should keep printing "in Daemon thread" forever. However this is not so.
