Threads not forking in a JUNIT test case

I have a Junit Test case that is testing some client server code. I create a separate threads to emulate the client and the server and expect to see operations interspersed. However they seemed to run sequentially. Running with debug on in eclipse, it looks as so all the Thread.run() calls are stacked in the same (main) thread. I would have expected that after the new Thread(new myRunnabled()).run a new thread to appear in the debug window. Here's is the stack trace from the main thread and its evident that after the run() methid is called the runnable is executing in the main thread.

The following code executes

Thread thread=new Thread(new Runner());
thread.setDaemon(true);
thread.run();


The first few lines of runnaer are

class Runner implements Runnable{

@Override
public void run() {
boolean first=true;
try {
mockIS.play(

I would expect Runnner to be running in its own thread, but the stack trace indicates it is exectuing in the main thread

Thread.run() line: 662
MockIS.play(String) line: 78
MockISTest$Runner.run() line: 140
Thread.run() line: 662
MockISTest.TestMockIS() line: 85

The full stack trace of the main thread follows.

You start() threads running so that should be

Just calling the run() method does as you say - it executes the code sequentially.
