Whenever we override start() method then our start() method will be executed just like a normal method call and new thread wont be created. We can override start/run method of Thread class because it is not final. But it is not recommended to override start() method, otherwise it ruins multi-threading concept.
Start Method Main Method
NOTE : In the above program, when we are calling start() method by an object of Bishal class, then any thread won’t be created and all the functions are done by main thread only.
Runtime stack provided by JVM for the above program:
When we call start() method on thread, it internally calls run() method with newly created thread. So, if we override start() method, run() method will not be called until we write code for calling run() method.
GThread: start() GRunnable: run()
When GThread.start() is called, output is : “GThread:start()”. When we call, thread.start(), the new thread will call the run() method of runnable, and we will get the “GRunnable:run()” message.
