public  interface  java.lang.Runnable
        // Methods
    public abstract void run();	§1.23.1
The Runnable interface should be implemented by any class whose instances are intended to be executed by a thread (I-§1.19). The class must define a method of no arguments called run.

Thread (I-§1.19).



public abstract void run()
When an object implementing interface Runnable is used to create a thread, starting the thread causes the object's run method to be called in that separately executing thread.
See Also:
run in class Thread (I-§1.19.30).
