Threads sleep/yield

  Asked By: Pedro    Date: Jul 03    Category: Java    Views: 922
  

I just wanted to get verification.
When Thread.sleep is called - does it pass execution to other
threads? or does it hold execution

Meaning, when a thread is sleeping, are other threads executing? Or
does the thread hold execution for its 'share'

If the other thread  is called  before the sleep method then the other
thread will continue processing. But if you have

sleep(x);

methody();

then methody() will be called after the sleeping has finished.

Yes, it passes execution  to other threads..........

This question is not entirely meaningful.
Java threads  are always pre-emptive.
Even if the thread  didn't pass  execution,
other threads would still be executing
and get their share  of the CPU - so you don't
have to worry about it.
