hello Im trying to develop an applet that will use multiple threads. And I have some questions... If I want to have one class running as a thread, this can be done like this, right?
Or should I place the code that I have in start() in the constructor? Does the class myApplet need to implement runnable or is it enough that ThreadObj does that. How do I suspend and resume threads? I want the thread to suspend (pause) itself and be resumed bu the parent.
You should read the Java Tutorial chapter on threads. It explains a great deal of what you are wondering about. The bottom line is that you make a class class by extending Thread or implement Runnable, then implement a method with the signiture:
This is the method that will be executed in the new thread. Then you start the new thread of execution by either creating a new Thread for a class that implements Runnable:
or invoking start() on an instance of a class that extends Thread. [ January 16, 2004: Message edited by: Joe Ess ]
