public static void main,

1. Class_name obj=new Class_name("Thread_name");
2. new Class-name("Thread_name");

Does 1 and 2 makes the same sense? are they both same?

Execution wise both will be same. After execution of first statement the reference (obj) of the object will alive whereas in second case once execution over the object will not alive as it is not assigned to any reference.

First we create the object of class after that we pass that object to thread class. And finally, we call the start method which is initial method for start thread.

You are correct @Sundar. Agree with you.

Correct me, if I am wrong the class x should be runnable i.e. the class x must implement run() method of runnable interface, and then must be given to thread(runnable arg) constructor.
