Q. While reading about the Thread topic, i come across the term " Thread schedular", so many times. Can any one explain me this term, as i am getting confused. ?

The JVM has a section of it devoted to keep threads from arguing with each other about who gets to run when. That is called the thread schedular. Think of it as a traffic cop telling each thread when it can run and for how long.
