sir,
i have the following code.for calling the run method,we have to use start() mehtod.though i am directly calling the run method through run.it is working nicely.then waht for start();
Anybody help me?
class Thread1 implements Runnable
{
Thread t;
String name;
Thread1(String tname)
{
name=tname;
t=new Thread(this,name);
t.run();
}
public void run()
{
for(int i=0;i<8;i++)
{
System.out.println(i);
}
}
}
class DemoJoin
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
new Thread1("one");
}

}
thanks

Yep, except that by calling run() directly, your thread is being executed on a single thread and is not getting its own thread.
Try something like this:

Then try the same code using t.start()
Then only difference between my code and yours is the second Thread1 instance and the sleep block. (and it prints the name so you can see which Thread1 instance is running)
