Q. 55
What is the result of compiling and executing the following Java class:

public class ThreadTest extends Thread {
public void run() {
System.out.println("In run");
System.out.println("Leaving run");

public static void main(String args []) {
(new ThreadTest()).start();

1.Compilation will fail in the method main.
2.Compilation will fail in the method run.
3.A warning will be generated for method run.
4.The string "In run" will be printed to standard out.
5.Both strings will be printed to standard out.
6.Nothing will happen.
Select the most appropriate answer.
1) the answer is 4, why not 5? (looks like the thread is never resumed. why?)
2)will we be tested for those deprecated methods?

The answer is 4 and not 5 because: after the thread has called the suspend() method, it is not running, so it can't call the resume() method. Another thread has to do that.
I'm really not sure whether we'll be getting questions on deprecated methods in the real exam or not.
Hope that was helpful.
