Can anybody explain the statement "Not directly stopping the thread".
Ques 2)Arrange the methods which are invoked on a thread from directly stopping the thread to not directly stopping the thread.
I have seen this type of question in lot of mock scjp exams..

not directly stopping a thread means not using the stop() method (which is deprecated anyway) directly but to instead use flags to signify the thread when to return from execution...

Methods that might cause the current thread to temporarily stop execution -
yield()
sleep()
wait()
interrupt()
join()

Cheers!
