Detailed Description

Object representation of a system thread.

Except for the main thread, each new thread spawned by the virtual machine is represented by a thread object. As long as the thread is active, its own thread object will live on its stac and avoid being garbage collected. When a thread terminates, its thread object can be released if not referenced from another thread.
