Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Extending the Thread class, part of Advanced Java Programming (2012).
Multithreading is a process where you can have multiple things going on at the same time.…When you setup multithreading, you are implementing what Java calls concurrency, concurrent operations…that can execute simultaneously.…When you run code within a single class, say within the Main class, the process is linear;…only one thing can be executed at a time.…But in order to create multiple threads, you can either create your new classes that extend…a class called thread, or you can implement an interface.…
I'll show you in this video how to create your own thread classes.…I'm starting in a project called Extending Thread where the Main class has an empty main method.…I won't do anything in the Main method quite yet; I'm going to start by creating a custom…class that extends the thread class.…I'll go to my Package, right- click and choose New Class.…I'll name the custom class MyThread, and I'll set its Superclass as the Thread class.…
Notice that the thread class is a member of the Java.long package.…
