Description

The program calls a thread's run() method instead of calling start().

In most cases a direct call to a Thread object's run() method is a bug. The programmer intended to begin a new thread of control, but accidentally called run() instead of start(), so the run() method will execute in the caller's thread of control.

Risk Factors

TBD

Examples

The following excerpt from a Java program mistakenly calls run() instead of start().

   Thread thr = new Thread() {
     public void run() {
       ...
     } 
   };
   thr.run();
