Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Implementing the Runnable interface, part of Advanced Java Programming (2012).
In a previous video I showed how to extend the Thread class to create a secondary thread…for your Java application.…There is another approach, creating a custom class that implements an interface called Runnable.…I'll demonstrate this using the project ImplementRunnable, which has a Main class and a custom class…that extends the Thread class.…So when you implement the runnable interface, it will have the same run method as when you…extend the Thread class as a super class.…
I'll go to my Package, right-click and create a new class, I'll call it MyRunnable,…and then instead of setting a super class I'll add an interface.…I'll click the Add button, type Runnable, and choose the Runnable interface from java.lang,…and then I'll click Finish.…Eclipse automatically adds the run method because it's a required method of the Runnable…interface, and so it must be implemented by the class.…
I'll go back to my custom class, and I'll copy the code from its run method.…Selecting everything inside the method signature, copying it to the clipboard, and then I'll…
