waitFor suspends parent + siblings?

Posts: n/a

My application A (JFrame) spawns a thread B (JFrame implements runnable) in
its constructor. thread B has some checkboxes inside of it's JFrame content

public class A extends JFrame{

private tb B;

public A() {
B = new tb();

public void run somejarfile{
p = r.exec(javaw somejarfile);

I understand that each time I execute the p.waitFor() api, my application A
will be suspended (i.e. it does not respond to my mouseclicks nor
keypresses). That's fine. But my thread B stop responding to the mouse
clicks and keypress too!! Is this supposed to be the way waitFor() works? I
mean, does waitFor suspends its parent + its sibling threads?

How do I make thread B continue to respond to my mouse events?!
