How to create a thread by extending the Thread class ?.

Program to demonstrate creation of a thread by extending the Thread class in Java

package com.hubberspot.multithreading;

public class ProducerConsumerTest {


 public static void main(String[] args) {
  // 3. Create a thread by instantiating
  // an object from the class
  Thread producer = new Producer();
  Thread consumer = new Consumer();

  // 4. Call the start() method of the 
  // thread object
  producer.start();
  consumer.start();
  // Overall three threads are created 
  // 1. for main method , 2. for the Producer class
  // 3. for the Consumer class  

 }

}

// 1. Create a class that extends Thread
class Producer extends Thread {
 // 2. Overload the run method to perform 
 // the desired task
 public void run(){

  for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++){

   System.out.println("I am Producer : Produced Apple " + i);
   // static method that pause current thread so that other thread
   // gets the time to execute
   Thread.yield();   
  }

 }
}

class Consumer extends Thread {
 public void run(){

  for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++){

   System.out.println("I am Consumer : Consumed Apple " + i);
   Thread.yield();

  }

 }
}
