hi all,

Is it possible to implement all the thread methods(say..start(),run(),wait(),notify(),notifyAll(),sleep(),dead(),etc., with in a sample program.If so
can anyone display a program impementing all the thread methods.Also please
mention the usage of each thread method as where and when to use..

looking forward....

tx&best regards

They are already implemented as Thread is a class.

You can however extend Thread and override the methods.
The methods in Thread are native methods so overriding them will change there behavour and it will no long run as new Thread.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
