    nothing to do with threads.. just put an infintie loop in your main:

    Code:
    ..
    
      public static void main(String[] argv){
        for(;;){
          //do stuff
        }
      }

    or u can always use the while or do-while

    while (condition)
    {
    do something
    }

    prg will keep on going until the condition changes


    do
    {
    do something
    }
    while (condition)

    prg will do it once then will continue on doing it after it checks the condition where it'll stop once that condition ceases to exist

    while and do loop, rewritten to use a for loop:

    while(condition)
    for(;condition;)

    do{}while(condition)
    for(boolean doo=true;doo;doo=condition)

    If you defanetly need threads, though... it's
    Code:
    Thread runner=new Thread(new Runnable(){
      public void run(){
        while(true){ //infinite loop
          //do stuff
        }
      }
    }
    runner.start();
    however, you really don't need a thread for your resquest unless you want concurrently running processes

    So what's it to be, tiger? does he need a thread or not?

    ps; it's "definitely", from "define"
