    Problems overriding interrupt() method in Thread

      I have a class that extends Thread and overrides interrupt() method but it does not seem to be using that. I have some print statements in my method but they never get printed.
      public class ProcessingThread extends Thread { 
         public void run () {
             // Processing code
      public void interrupt() { 
           System.out.println("Interrupt() method");
      It won't print the statement in the interrupt() method. I tried to add synchronized as well,. Is it possible or maybe java does not allow this?
