public class InterruptedException
extends Exception

Thrown when a thread is waiting, sleeping, or otherwise occupied, and the thread is interrupted, either before or during the activity. Occasionally a method may wish to test whether the current thread has been interrupted, and if so, to immediately throw this exception. The following code can be used to achieve this effect:

  if (Thread.interrupted())  // Clears interrupted status!
      throw new InterruptedException();
