- public class ThreadDeath
- extends Error
An instance of
ThreadDeath is thrown in the victim
thread when the
stop method with zero arguments in
Thread is called.
An application should catch instances of this class only if it
must clean up after being terminated asynchronously. If
ThreadDeath is caught by a method, it is important
that it be rethrown so that the thread actually dies.
The top-level error handler does not print out a message if
ThreadDeath is never caught.
ThreadDeath is specifically a subclass of
Error rather than
Exception, even though
it is a "normal occurrence", because many applications
catch all occurrences of
Exception and then discard
