isAlive() and join() in Thread

The main thread must be the last thread to finish. Sometimes this is accomplished by calling sleep() withinmain( ), with a long enough delay to ensure that all child threads terminate prior to the main thread. However, this is hardly a satisfactory solution, and it also raises a larger question: How can one thread know when another thread has ended? Fortunately, Thread provides a means by which you can answer this question.
Two ways exist to determine whether a thread has finished. First, you can call isAlive( ) on the thread. This method is defined by Thread, and its general form is shown here:
final boolean isAlive( )
The isAlive( ) method returns true if the thread upon which it is called is still running. It returns falseotherwise. While isAlive( ) is occasionally useful, the method that you will more commonly use to wait for a thread to finish is called join( ), shown here:
final void join( ) throws InterruptedException
This method waits until the thread on which it is called terminates. Its name comes from the concept of the calling thread waiting until the specified thread joins it. Additional forms of join( ) allow you to specify a maximum amount of time that you want to wait for the specified thread to terminate. Here is an improved version of the preceding example that uses join( ) to ensure that the main thread is the last to stop. It also demonstrates the isAlive( ) method.

GOF Design pattern with Java & Real World Examples

What are design patterns? 

So basically these are just collection of best practices to solve recurring problem by different kind of class arrangement. These arrangement could be based on creation of object or structural basis or on basis of required behavior.




Creational Design Pattern
Prototype Designpattern we will like to use this designpattern whenever creation of initial object & setting required default values is costly. So we just create 1 object & later on whenever more objects required we can provide initial object by just cloning of given object.Java Example is java.lang.Object#clone()
Builder DesignPattern When we jave object structure are complex and complicated we would go for this. we will be separating object creation from internal representation. With help of some simple interface we would create complicated Object.
Singleton When we need one instance per JVM. Example : Java Run time environment Java.lang.System.  java.lang.StringBuilder, Spring Beans are singleton …
