Submitted by Preeti Jain, on July 20, 2019

Thread Class final int getPriority()

  • This method is available in package java.lang.Thread.getPriority().
  • This method is used to return the priority of this thread.
  • This method is not static so this method is accessible with Thread class object it is not accessible with the class name.
  • This method is final so we can't override this method in our program.
  • The return type of this method is int so it returns the integer of this thread as a number (i.e. Priority will be in number).
  • This method does not raise any exception.
  • We need to notice that if we don't assign any priority explicitly the default priority of this thread is 5.


    final int getPriority(){


We don't pass any object as a parameter in the method of the Thread.

Return value:

The return type of this method is int, it returns the priority of this thread as a number.

Java program to demonstrate example of getPriority() method

/*  We will use Thread class methods so we are importing 
    the package but it is not mandate because 
    it is imported by default

import java.lang.Thread;

class GetThreadPriority extends Thread {
    // Override run() of Thread class
    public void run() {
        // By using getPriority() method is used to get the 
        //  priority of this thread
        System.out.println("The priority of this thread is : " + Thread.currentThread().getPriority());

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Creating an object of GetThreadPriority class
        GetThreadPriority gt_priority = new GetThreadPriority();

        // We are setting the name of the thread GetThreadPriority

        // Calling start() method with GetThreadPriority class 
        // object of Thread class

        // By using getName() method to return the name of 
        // this thread [GetThreadPriority ]
        System.out.println("The name of this thread is " + " " + gt_priority.getName());


E:\Programs>javac GetThreadPriority.java

E:\Programs>java GetThreadPriority
The name of this thread is  GetThreadPriority
The priority of this thread is : 5
