Threads and Runnables

  • Jeff Friesen


Java applications execute via threads, which are independent paths of execution through an application’s code. When multiple threads are executing, each thread’s path can differ from other thread paths. For example, a thread might execute one of a switch statement’s cases, and another thread might execute another of this statement’s cases.
