Hi Max,
In your book, there is a test package. I don't quite understand some code in DBTestRunner.java, that is,
while (test1.isAlive()
&& test2.isAlive()
&& test3.isAlive()
&& test4.isAlive()
&& test5.isAlive()
&& test1.isAlive()) {
}
System.out.println("Completed all tests.");
This means that if one thread is dead, then the test is completed. Why?
As I imagine, if the test is completed, then all thread should be dead. Can you explain?

HI Mike,
I don't have the book handy. Can you give me a little more context?

Hi Max,
The following is the full code:

[Andrew: I have put the code in between a UBB [code] and [/code] tags. This ensures that indenting is preserved, and makes the code easier to read. If you edit this post, you will see what I have done.]

Good point, this seems to be a bug. I'd suggest replacing the while loop with:
test1.join();
test2.join();
test3.join();
test4.join();
test5.join();
test6.join();
This could at least be done in the downloadable verion of the code, right? The code is also listed on p. 333; guess that need to be in the errata.
