Have you read the Thread API to see what setDaemon(true) does? Have you tried it with setDaemon(false)?

Sometimes 30, 35, and 20, no guarantee. You have made the thread daemon
using setDaemon(true).

Straight from JavaDoc:


public final void setDaemon(boolean on)

Marks this thread as either a daemon thread or a user thread. The Java Virtual Machine exits when the only threads running are all daemon threads.

This method must be called before the thread is started




When a Java Virtual Machine starts up, there is usually a single non-daemon thread (which typically calls the method named main of some designated class). The Java Virtual Machine continues to execute threads until either of the following occurs:

* The exit method of class Runtime has been called and the security manager has permitted the exit operation to take place.
* All threads that are not daemon threads have died, either by returning from the call to the run method or by throwing an exception that propagates beyond the run method.




Thanks,
