I have this question:
Which methods may cause a thread to stop executing?

sleep();
stop();
yield();
wait();
notify();
I chose sleep(), yield() and wait().
While answer includes stop().
Stop() is deprecated, and my question is:
do deprecated methods still need to be considered in SCJP 1.4?
Thanks
Karen

As far as I can remember from my preparation from the exam, deprecated methods aren't tested - so you only really need to know about wait(), notify(), notifyAll(), sleep(), yield(), join() and run() as well as the Thread constructors.
Of course, a little bit of extra knowledge about Java's history can't hurt; besides, it sounds like you've already covered enough about stop() to know what it does and where it might be used (or misused!) anyway.
Please correct me if I'm wrong or if I've missed any required methods out...
