    Default Thread Question

    How would I go about loading another separate classes LinkedList with a number in my current class? I want to retrieve the number that is getting "pulled" (via the .pullOrder in this Run method) and load it into a linkedList called printerQueue in another class (called OrderQueue).
    public class OrderHandler extends Thread	{
     
        private OrderQueue orderQueue;
     
     
        public OrderHandler(OrderQueue orderQueue)
        {	this.orderQueue = orderQueue;
     
        }
     
        public void run()	{
     
            Order order;
            while (true)	{
                    order = orderQueue.pullOrder();     // get next available order
                    OrderQueue.printerQueue = order;
                    System.out.println("\t\t\t " + order.toString() + "    " + this.getName());
     
                    try
                    {	Thread.sleep(2000);		}             // delay two seconds
     
                    catch (InterruptedException e) {}   	    // ignore interruptions
     
            }	// end while
     
        }	// end run method
     
    }	// end OrderHandler class

    Default Re: Thread Question

    Create a field and pass that linked list to your OrderHandler constructor (I can't remember whether OrderHandler is multi-thread safe, you'll need to check). Accessing that linked list works the same as accessing any other field.
