Hi Dennis, if I get your question right, a possible solution with minor modifications can look like this:

Hope this helps.

Hi,
The code looks good, but just one thing that poped into my mind...
What if t2 never gets chance to run before t1, meaning there won't be actual join... ? or what if t1 will never get chance to run....and t1 goes ahead and finishes....
I might not sure but how about this code ...

Just that t2 starts t1 and joins itself...
Thanks
Venkatesh

If a call to the thread's isAlive() method returns false, you can still join a currently executing thread to it. isAlive() returns false if a thread hasn't been started or its run() has completed. In this event, t.join() returns immediately to allow the current thread to continue executing.
