In the example above we see that it displays current thread output in a certain ways.

The element at first index location “main” is name of the thread, element at second location “5” is the default priority, and the element at last index location “main” is the name of group to which the thread belongs. A group thread is a data structure which controls the state of collection of threads as a whole.

Let us see implementation of few more methods to understand better.
