Thread question


I’ve been looking at using the method named [color=#0000FF]isThreadRunning[/color] in the [color=#0000FF]Thread[/color] class. But I wonder what it’s really telling me. Perhaps Jules or someone else might provide a little enlightenment. Does a [color=#0000FF]true[/color] return mean only that the thread has been created? Does it mean that it’s actually getting some CPU cycles? Thanks to anyone who can tell me more.


Well, it just means that the thread’s run() method has been invoked, and hasn’t returned yet.


So it’s been created and passed to the scheduler, but that’s all we know. Thanks for the clarification.
