What are you doing here?!! Let me guess... you're making a JNI
call to actually kill a Java thread, using the kill syscall on
Linux! (Bingo?)

What is your motivation?

Let the thread die of its own. If you want to do something close
to killing a thread, have the run method make a check like this:

public void run()
for (; {
if (Thread.interrupted())


From outside of this thread, you just call Thread.interrupt()
on it. Also, if you're calling sleep() on the thread, then you
should catch InterruptedException and break from there.
