class A extends Thread {

public void run() {

try {

} catch (InterruptedException ie) {

System.out.println("Thread Interrupted");

System.out.println("\n" + interrupted());

class X {

public static void main(String[] args) {

A t = new A();

Thread Interrupted
false // Why false here

interrupted() resets interrupt flag right?

Thanks in Advance.

Each Thread has an associated boolean interruption status. Invoking t.interrupt for some Thread t sets t's interruption status to true, unless Thread t is engaged in Object.wait, Thread.sleep, or Thread.join; in this case interrupt causes these actions (in t) to throw InterruptedException, but t's interruption status is set to false.
