I knew what is Runnable state.(when start() method is called on thread instance,then the thread moves form new state to Runnable state). Is Ready and
Runable states are same or different.


with regards,
ravi

Different books use different terminology, but generally Ready and Runnable should mean the same thing. Nowadays it's probably best to stick to the terminology used in Thread.State, introduced in JDK 5.
