Threads

-Two minor changes are introduced to the {@link java.lang.Thread} -class: It now allows per-thread installation of handlers for uncaught -exceptions. Ths optionally disassociates handlers from ThreadGroups, -which has proven to be too inflexible. (Note that the combination of -features in JSR-166 make ThreadGroups even less likely to be used in -most programs. Perhaps they will eventually be deprecated.) Secondly, -access checks are no longer required when a Thread interrupts -itself. The interrupt method is the only way to -re-assert a thread's interruption status (and in the case of -self-interruption has no other effect than this). The check here -previously caused unjustifiable and uncontrollable failures when -restricted code invoked library code that must reassert interruption -to correctly propagate status when encountering some -InterruptedExceptions. +Three minor changes are introduced to the {@link java.lang.Thread} +class: +
