Create a Thread to Execute Short Code

Create a Thread to Execute Short Code

Sometimes you want to create a thread to run something trivial, like when you’re debugging your code. This is a quick way to do it:

   new Thread(new Runnable()             {                public void run()                {                   // Enter your code here.                }             }).start();


You could also separate the creation of the Runnable from the threadexecution, if you think that is better style:

   Runnable r = new Runnable()               {                  public void run()                  {                     // Enter your code here.                  }               };  new Thread(r).start();


This way allows you to start new threads that doing the same thing by just repeating the last line.
