Hi. I am going through K&B,threads topic.

I understood that a thread can be created either implementing the Runnable interface or by extending the Thread class. The job that is to be done by the thread goes in the overridden run() method.

But in this code
I try to create a thread and override the run method and start a thread(t). This does not work.
Can someone explain why,please

MyThread is now child of Thread class, and you override run() method in your child class, so if you assign you child class's object to Thread class reference variable, t.start() will call your MyThread's run() method. This is called polymorphism, overriding, oops fundas. Just make lots of this type of code, you will be flying with these.
