can we run a run() method with out using a start() method in a program?

public class A extends Thread
{
public void run()
{

System.out.println(" i will execute any way");

}

public static void main(string args[])
{

A a=new A();

a.run(); // no start method

}
}

Yes, but it won't work the way you expect it to work.

Calling the run() method directly would be like calling a normal method. No thread of execution is created, no concurrency. On the other hand, calling the start method spawns a new thread of execution which can execute concurrently with other threads by executing the run() method.

Yes, but it won't work the way you expect it to work.

it will work!!! but only as a method, not thread. It won't run simultaneously :)
