Chapter: Thread Last Updated: 11-06-2016 07:42:54 UTC

Program:

            /* ............... START ............... */
                
public class JavaCurrentThread extends Thread {
	public JavaCurrentThread(String name) {
		super(name);
	}

	@Override
	public void run() {
		Thread t = Thread.currentThread();
		String threadName = t.getName();
		System.out.println("Inside run() method:  " + threadName);
	}

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		JavaCurrentThread ct1 = new JavaCurrentThread("First Thread");
		JavaCurrentThread ct2 = new JavaCurrentThread("Second Thread");
		ct1.start();
		ct2.start();

		Thread t = Thread.currentThread();
		String threadName = t.getName();
		System.out.println("Inside  main() method:  " + threadName);
	}
}
                /* ............... END ............... */
        

Output

Inside  main() method:  main
Inside run() method:  Second Thread
Inside run() method:  First Thread

Notes:

  • java.lang.Thread.currentThread() method returns a reference to the currently executing thread object.
