    Getting a thread to throw an exception

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, can a mod move it if it is?

    Is it possible to get the run method inside a thread to throw an exception?
    If I describe the problem maybe I can get some advice on a different way to go about this.

    I have a main class class1 which creates a thread (class2) and executes some code within a timelimit. If class1 takes too long the thread should throw back an exception.

    Class2 myThread = new Class2();

    // do some stuff here within timelimit

    catch (Exception e)

    The best I can do it to get the thread to print "time out" when the timelimit
    is over and class1 is still executing.

    The problem is, the run method of a thread cannot throw exceptions.
    Is there a way around this? Is there a better to go about what I'm doing?
