Code Example 1

import java.util.concurrent.Executors;
import java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

public class TestThread {
	
   public static void main(final String[] arguments) throws InterruptedException {

      //Stats before tasks execution
      System.out.println("Largest executions: "
         + executor.getLargestPoolSize());
      System.out.println("Maximum allowed threads: "
         + executor.getMaximumPoolSize());
      System.out.println("Current threads in pool: "
         + executor.getPoolSize());
      System.out.println("Currently executing threads: "
         + executor.getActiveCount());
      System.out.println("Total number of threads(ever scheduled): "
         + executor.getTaskCount());
