Message: question

Posted by Hiran on November 20, 2001 at 5:44 AM

Thnx Chin. My next question is two-fold.
Background Info:
I have four java files in a project -,,, and - and ExecuteApp calls a method in Read and then calls a method in Task as a new Thread (because the method called is an endless while loop). Both, the methods in Read and Task call a method in ExecuteProcess.
Question 1:
When the JVM exits, is the Thread still running? If not, how can I get it to run apart from the JVM? Or will I have to keep the JVM running the whole time?
Question 2:
If the Thread is still running after the JVM exits, what will happen when the method in ExecuteProcess is called?
Thnx in advance for the help!
