I have never use thread at all of my programs. I am wondering if anyone can explain to me why, when and how we can use it.
I read sun's tutorial at: http://web2.java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/mini/threads.html
I still have no idea about thread.
I will appreciate for you help!

Threads are the way that Java does multiple things at the same time... perhaps a link to the Sun thread tutorial will help?
