will the setPriority and exits synchronized code directly cause a thread to stop executing?

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any documentation to back this up, but I believe that neither case will cause a thread to stop executing.

It makes no sense for exiting a synchronized region to force a thread to stop executing. All a synchronized region says is "at the moment I need exclusive access to the object". The thread still has work to do when it isn't in a sync region, so there is no reason to force it to stop executing.
There really aren't any solid guarantees made about what priority even means, so there is no reason why changing it would force a thread to stop executing.
