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");
suspend();
resume();
System.out.println("Leaving run");
}

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

a)Compilation will fail in the method main.
b)Compilation will fail in the method run.
c)A warning will be generated for method run.
d)The string "In run" will be printed to standard out.
e)Both strings will be printed to standard out.
f)Nothing will happen.
answer is d.
but i think the output should be e) "in run" and "leaving run

Hi Sona,
This is really a moot point because both suspend and resume have been deprecated in JDK1.2.
The code places it self into suspend mode so it will not continue anymore. If it is in suspend mode then it can't call resume on itself because it is suspended! That is why only one print happens ...
Regards,
Manfred.
