Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalThreadStateException

Process finished with exit code 1

✏️ IllegalThreadStateException is thrown to indicate that a thread is not in an appropriate state for the requested operation.

Example, you will see java.lang.IllegalThreadStateException when you are using Multi-Threading in your Java program and you start the same thread more than one!

 * Java Code Example: code2care.org
public class MyThread extends Thread {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        MyThread thread = new MyThread();
        System.out.println("This is Main Thread");
        thread.start(); //IllegalThreadStateException


    public void run() {
         System.out.println("This is my Thread");

Fix java.lang.IllegalThreadStateException Error

The above code can be fixed by making sure that once the thread is not started multiple times.
