In any class can we extend and implement the Thread Class and Runnable Interface simultaneously.

The general rule of thumb is " Implement Runnable if you need to run any task in a separate thread and Extend Thread if you need to inherit the thread properties for the class in addition to running the task in itself "

But why you need to extend & implement it simultaneously. The thread class has already implemented the runnable interface.
