Hi,

Here is the detailed disadvantage of Threads.

Let?s discuss the disadvantages of threads.

  1. The global variables defined in the application is not thread safe and different thread can access the same variable at a same time. So, this can be disastrous. So, you are advised to put the global variable access code into synchronized{} block.

  2. Many java libraries are not thread safe. So, you should be very care full while using the such libraries in your application.

  3. Thread may crash your application. If in your application there is some problem in the thread and it crashes, it will crash your whole application.

  4. If due to memory leak if one thread is killed, the other threads using the same memory location will be killed automatically. This situation is disastrous to your application.

  5. Threads functioning is dependent on OS support.

  6. If threads in your program are executed serially it may increase the complexity.

  7. Thread consumes lot of resources, if you overuse it, it may degrade the performance of your application.

Thanks
