Java Multi-threading

How to Write Multi-threading Code ?

The multi-threading programming of Java is achieved through the use of Thread object.
1. Declare a class to be the subclass of Thread class and overrides its run method.
2. Declare a class and implement the Runnable interface, then implement the run method. (Recommended)

The create of a new thread requires that a Thread object to be created with a Runnable object given as the first argument. To start running a new thread, a thread.start() method is provided. Also, thread.join() method is provided to synchronize states between different threads.


Static class members are shared by all threads (atomic w/r). Keyword: Synchronized is provided to ensure the all threads execute certain methods sequentially.

Class method members (as well as local variables in the method definition) is independent for each threads.
