The different stages of the Life Cycle of a Thread can be stated as follows.
Stage 1 : Creating a class where we can override the run method of the Thread class.
Stage 2 : We make a call to
start() on the new thread. The thread is taken forward for scheduling purposes.
Stage 3 : Execution takes place wherein the thread starts execution, and it reaches the running state.
Stage 4 : Thread wait until the calls to methods including
sleep() takes place.
Stage 5 : After the waiting or execution of the thread, the waiting thread is sent for scheduling.
Stage 6 : Running thread is done by executing the terminates and reaches the dead state.
