Yield method

Please consider this piece of code
class Testthread2 extends Thread
public void run()
public static void main(String args[])
Testthread2 tt = new Testthread2;
In this example should the yield method not be in a try catch block since the thread gets interrupted by yield?

The yield() method does not throw an exception, so therefore it needn't be in a try block.
I agree. Here's the link:
