ThreadGroup Class isDestroyed() method

  • isDestroyed() method is available in java.lang package.
  • isDestroyed() method is used to check whether this thread group has been destroyed or not destroyed.
  • isDestroyed() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • isDestroyed() method does not throw an exception at the time of checking the destroyed behavior of this thread group.


    public boolean isDestroyed();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of this method is Boolean – it returns true when this thread group has been destroyed otherwise it returns false.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of boolean isDestroyed()method of ThreadGroup 

public class Destroy implements Runnable {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Destroy des = new Destroy();

    public void destroy() {
        try {
            // Create two thread group and the named are base
            // and derived

            ThreadGroup base = new ThreadGroup("Base ThreadGroup");
            ThreadGroup derived = new ThreadGroup(base, "Derived ThreadGroup");

            // create two threads
            Thread th1 = new Thread(base, this);
            Thread th2 = new Thread(derived, this);

            // By using getName() method is to retrieve the
            // name of the thread th1
            System.out.println(th1.getName() + " " + "begins.....");

            // By using start() method is to start its execution 
            // of thread th1

            // By using getName() method is to retrieve the
            // name of the thread th2
            System.out.println(th2.getName() + " " + "begins.....");

            // By using start() method is to start its execution 
            // of thread th2

            // By using join() method is to wait the current
            // thread till complete execution of another
            // thread


            // By using isDestroyed() method is to check the
            // destroy status of the thread group
            boolean b1 = base.isDestroyed();
            boolean b2 = derived.isDestroyed();

            System.out.println("Is" + " " + base.getName() + "destroyed:" + " " + b1);
            System.out.println("Is" + " " + derived.getName() + "destroyed:" + " " + b2);
        } catch (InterruptedException ex) {

    // Override run()
    public void run() {
        for (int k = 0; k < 100; ++k)
        System.out.println(Thread.currentThread().getName() + " " + "ends.....");


Thread-0 begins.....
Thread-1 begins.....
Thread-0 ends.....
Thread-1 ends.....

Is Base ThreadGroupdestroyed: false
Is Derived ThreadGroupdestroyed: false
