Hi,

I have just started working with threads and I have a question: here's a scenario

If I have a program with Class A which has a main method, in this main method an instance of Class B is created and class B does "something". My question is if I run class A and and an instance of class B is made, would they be running on the same thread or on different threads ?

In Java, if one method calls another method, the callee and caller execute on the same thread. To run code in a differrent thread, you will have to use the Java threading APi.
