Hi every body ,
I have one question ,
We know that sleep() is a static method .But I have seen some places Thread.currentThread().sleep() instead of Thread.sleep(), what is the difference between these two ?

Thanks & regards,
S

People who write "Thread.currentThread().sleep()" generally just aren't aware that sleep() is a static method. They believe that they need to fetch the current thread, and call sleep() on it. But since sleep() is static, this is unnecessary, and either line of code will have the exact same effect.
