Uses of Class
java.lang.Thread

Packages that use Thread
java.lang Provides classes that are fundamental to the design of the Java programming language. 
java.util.concurrent Utility classes commonly useful in concurrent programming. 
java.util.concurrent.locks Interfaces and classes providing a framework for locking and waiting for conditions that is distinct from built-in synchronization and monitors. 
javax.swing.text Provides classes and interfaces that deal with editable and noneditable text components.
