If your inter-thread communication uses the wait()/notify() mechanism, -- you can do just that, -- notify the waiting thread so that it can resume. If the thread in question contains a while loop as part of its run() method, you can set a boolean to terminate to exit from that loop.

I think his real question is "How can you interrupt a call to System.in.read()?" Unfortunately, I don't know the answer: interrupt() doesn't work.
