Stopping Threads

Question:
How do you stop a Thread without using the stop() method?

Answer:
The recommended method for stopping threads in Java is for each thread to poll a boolean value or condition that indicates whether or not the thread should continue executing. To stop the thread, the boolean value is set to false, causing the thread to exit. In other words, threads are supposed to manage halting on their own; the programmer provides the mechanism.
