    thread dump interpretation: a frozen java program

    807605
      I have a java server program that listens on unix sockets. At some point, the program just hang in there and did nothing. Here is output by sending -SIGQUIT to it.

      Main thread is OK and sitting at "client=server.accept();", which is indicated by "at AnnieD.listenSocket(AnnieD.java:248)".

      There is 1 connection which is indicated by "Thread-1". Though it is "runnable", it also shows it stops at line 647 as in "at ClientHandler.run(AnnieD.java:647)", which is
      iByteRead=dis.read(bFrameType, 0, 1);
      where
      dis=new DataInputStream(client.getInputStream());
      and "client" is socket to talk to a client.

      So, my question is regarding this thread dump interpretation:

      Does this mean that the server is waiting for data from client (though, ofcoz I am going to check if the client wrote any data to the socket at all later) ? But what are these daemons: "CompilerThread1", "CompilerThread2", "AdapterThread", and "Finalizer"? and what clue can be drawn from their status?

      Thanks!
