Hi Mohit,

There is such a function. But you should read the API Documentation carefully why you shouldn't use it.

Hi Manfred

I know we can use depricated method 'stop()' to stop the thread.

But if I dont want to use any depricated method then how to kill a running thread??

Thanks in advance..

Then the answer is: There is no such function. And if you understand the API documentation you will know why.

There is a reason why stop() is deprecated. It is deprecated because when you force a thread to stop, instead of asking it to stop gracefully, you can leave variables in an indeterminate state -- as locks are forced to be released.

stop() is deprecated because there is no guaranteed safe way to force a thread to stop.
