Question:

Explain the available thread states in a high-level.

Answer:

During its execution, a thread can reside in one of the following states:

  • NEW: The thread becomes ready to run, but does not necessarily start running immediately.
  • RUNNABLE: The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is actively executing the thread’s code.
  • BLOCKED: The thread is in a blocked state while waiting for a monitor lock.
  • WAITING: The thread waits for another thread to perform a particular action.
  • TIMED_WAITING: The thread waits for another thread to perform a particular action up to a specified waiting time.
  • TERMINATED: The thread has finished its execution.
