    Default how high-priority thread allow other thread

    What must a high-priority thread do when it needs to perform a critical operation once every five seconds, but which still allows other threads to get CPU time?
    Choice 1
    Reduce its priority using the setPriority() method.
    Choice 2
    Use the Thread.sleep() method to relinquish control of the CPU.
    Choice 3
    Add all the other threads into its own ThreadGroup.
    Choice 4
    Use the notifyAll() method to increase priority of other threads.
    Choice 5
    Put its critical code in a Timer object.

    Have you written a test program to see what happens?

    Suggestion given by Norm is the best one.
    Write a simple program with 4-5 simple threads, implement all your ways and check which would best suite.

    I prefer choice2, not sure check it out.
    To finish sooner, take your own time....

    Timer object probably best, but as the other two posts suggest, only testing show true result.
