How to Create a Thread Using Runnable Interface


In Java, a Thread can be created by extending to a Thread class or by implementing the Runnable Interface. In below example, I have tried to create the thread by implementing Runnable interface.

package in.javatutorials;

public class CreateThredByRunnable {

public static void main(String[] args) {
Thread myThreadA = new Thread(new MyThread(), “threadA”);
Thread myThreadB = new Thread(new MyThread(), “threadB”);
// run the two threads
myThreadA.start();
myThreadB.start();

try {
Thread.currentThread().sleep(1000);
} catch (InterruptedException e) {
}
// Display info about the main thread
System.out.println(Thread.currentThread());
}

}

class MyThread implements Runnable {
public void run() {
for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
System.out.println(Thread.currentThread());
}
}
}
