I have set the priority of a particular thread to be MAX_PRIORITY. Yet when i try to run the thread using the start() method it just does not start. The code compiles fine and there are no runtime exceptions ( I checked several times just to be sure ). The first statement in the run method is a debug statement which never appears in my log file. Under what circumstances will a thread fail to start like this ? How can i fix this ? No Exceptions were encountered what so ever. This really puzzles me.
