That's a rather old link. Whenever you have a problem like that, try the Java™ Tutorials.

Thread is a java object. Let's take, our main() method is also executed by a thread. When you create your thread, and start to execute it, there will a separate call stack will be created as like main thread. Simply thread of execution means, the process/work carried out by threads.
