Consider the above program. I am totally confused. Are not two threads created. so will each thread not have its own copy of x and y?
Thanks.

You do, indeed, create two threads, but you're only creating one instance of the class TestClass, which contains your x and y variables. As you're passing a reference to the same TestClass object to each thread, each thread has a reference to a single, shared object and, likewise, shared x and y variables.
Had you done this:

Then each thread would have a reference to a unique TestClass object and they would, in turn, have their own x and y variables.
I hope that helps,
Corey
