First of all, i am going to example about java thread priority.

Priority of Thread:- Each thread have a priority. Priorities are represented by a number between 1 and 10.

There are 3 constants in java Thread class:-

  1. public static int MIN_PRIORITY
  2. public static int NORM_PRIORITY
  3. public static int MAX_PRIORITY

To set thread priority by using setPriority() method. It takes int value.

See the following running example of Thread priority:-

package threadExample;

public class TestThreadPriority extends Thread{

    public void run(){
        System.out.println("Thread name: "
                + Thread.currentThread().getName()
                + " priority: "
                + Thread.currentThread().getPriority());  

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        TestThreadPriority threadPriority1 = new TestThreadPriority();
        TestThreadPriority threadPriority2 = new TestThreadPriority();



Thread name: Thread-0 priority: 1
Thread name: Thread-1 priority: 10
