Thread Without Synchronization In Java

By | September 28, 2017

Thread Without Synchronization In Java : An application that creates an instance of Thread must provide the code that will run in that thread. There are two ways to do this:

  • Provide a Runnable object. 
  • Subclass Thread. The Thread class itself implements Runnable, though its run method does nothing.

To know in details you may visit oracle documentation for threads.

 

class PrintDemo {
   public void printCount() {
      try {
         for(int i = 5; i > 0; i--) {
            System.out.println("Counter   ---   "  + i );
         }
      }catch (Exception e) {
         System.out.println("Thread  interrupted.");
      }
   }
}

class ThreadDemo extends Thread {
   private Thread t;
   private String threadName;
   PrintDemo  PD;

   ThreadDemo( String name,  PrintDemo pd) {
      threadName = name;
      PD = pd;
   }
   
   public void run() {
      PD.printCount();
      System.out.println("Thread " +  threadName + " exiting.");
   }

   public void start () {
      System.out.println("Starting " +  threadName );
      if (t == null) {
         t = new Thread (this, threadName);
         t.start ();
      }
   }
}

public class TestThread {
   public static void main(String args[]) {

      PrintDemo PD = new PrintDemo();

      ThreadDemo T1 = new ThreadDemo( "Thread - 1 ", PD );
      ThreadDemo T2 = new ThreadDemo( "Thread - 2 ", PD );

      T1.start();
      T2.start();

      // wait for threads to end
         try {
         T1.join();
         T2.join();
      }catch( Exception e) {
         System.out.println("Interrupted");
      }
   }
