Each thread is associated with an instance of the class
Thread . There are two basic strategies for using
Thread objects to create a concurrent application.
- To directly control thread creation and management, simply instantiate
Threadeach time the application needs to initiate an asynchronous task.
- To abstract thread management from the rest of your application, pass the application's tasks to an executor.
This section documents the use of
Thread objects. Executors are discussed with other high-level concurrency objects.
