The "standard" reference to begin with would be the chapter on concurrency from the Java Tutorial:

1. Implement Runnable interface
2. Pass it to a new Thread in constructor

If you need to manage your thread (stop it from outside the thread), follow this pattern:
public class MyRunnable implements Runnable{
   public void run(){
      //thread logic here, some endless loop probably
public class Main{
   public static void main(String[] args){
      //run MyRunnable as separate thread
      new Thread(new MyRunnable()).start();
      //some other logic here
