This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I have a SCJD exam review book, which tries to explain the join method you can call on a Thread instance. However, its a little confusing to me. Could someone please explain exactly how the join method works when you call it on a Thread instance. Thanks, Cliff
The Thread.join method will not return to the caller until: 1) the thread join was called on dies, or 2) the specified amount of time elapses. try the following code, both as is and with the try:join block commented out to see this in action

Thanks so much. It is much easier to understand after seeing it in action.
