Java Thread SetName() Method

Chapter: Thread Last Updated: 19-08-2017 08:40:48 UTC

Program:

            /* ............... START ............... */
                
public class JavaThreadsetName {

	public static void main(String[] args) {

		Thread t = Thread.currentThread();
		// prints the thread name
		System.out.println("Thread = " + t);

		// change the thread name
		t.setName("Admin Thread");

		// prints the thread after changing name
		System.out.println("Thread after changing name = " + t);

		int count = Thread.activeCount();
		System.out.println("currently active threads = " + count);
	}

}
                /* ............... END ............... */
        

Output

Thread = Thread[main,5,main]
Thread after changing name = Thread[Admin Thread,5,main]
currently active threads = 1

Notes:

  • The java.lang.Thread.setName() method changes the name of this thread to be equal to the argument name.
