The above code compiles & runs fine.Shouldn't it give compile time error?Coz run method of Thread class is not overriden in child class? [ October 20, 2003: Message edited by: Veena Point ] [ October 20, 2003: Message edited by: Thomas Paul ]

Veena - can you please take some time and format your code with whitespace so that its actually readable? Its very difficult to read the code you post when it has no indentation. Thanks - Jess

Hi Veena You need to override the run() method of Runnable either directly or indirectly. If you don't, it's an error. The Thread's class run() method if not overriden would not result in any error. The thread would simply not do anything.

The run() method of Thread is not an abstract method so it does not have to be overridden.
