public class ThreadDeath extends Error
ThreadDeathis 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
ThreadDeath is caught by a method, it is important that it
be rethrown so that the thread actually dies.
The top-level error
handler does not print out a message if
ThreadDeath is specifically a subclass of
Error rather than
Exception, even though it is a
"normal occurrence", because many applications catch all
Exception and then discard the exception.
