I'm surprised it doesn't print more than that. e.values() returns all the values of the Thread.State enum. It has nothing to do with the current state of your thread. What you want to do is :

Thread.State[] ts = e.values();


would return you an array of enum of Thread.State, and you are printing the same. These are not your "current thread" states.
Please check http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/java/lang/Thread.State.htmlfor more info.

After the bold statement has been executed, clockThread is in the New Thread state. When a thread is a New Thread, it is merely an empty Thread object; no system resources have been allocated for it yet. When a thread is in this state, you can only start the thread. Calling any method besides start when a thread is in this state makes no sense and causes an IllegalThreadStateException. (In fact, the runtime system throws an IllegalThreadStateException any time a method is called on a thread and that thread's state does not allow for that method call.)
