Interesting: I have just read the Thread chapter in the Sierra/Bates SCJP2 book and do not recall seeing these methods mentioned. InterruptedException yes, but not these methods. Also the above mentioned book does not mention that Thread.join() throws InterruptedException. I did however fall asleep a few times... I'd better double check.
