public class: ThreadDeath [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:

An instance of {@code ThreadDeath} is thrown in the victim thread when the (deprecated) Thread#stop() method is invoked.

An application should catch instances of this class only if it must clean up after being terminated asynchronously. If {@code ThreadDeath} is caught by a method, it is important that it be rethrown so that the thread actually dies.

The {@linkplain ThreadGroup#uncaughtException top-level error handler} does not print out a message if {@code ThreadDeath} is never caught.

The class {@code ThreadDeath} is specifically a subclass of {@code Error} rather than {@code Exception}, even though it is a "normal occurrence", because many applications catch all occurrences of {@code Exception} and then discard the exception.
