You can call the static method from the run() method of the thread
without creating any instance of it.

You will need to make a Thread subclass or a class that implments Runnable. Let's call that 'X'
public static void passData(X x, Object data) {
    x.setData(data);
}

Something like:


A.java

public class A {
   public static void foo() {
     System.out.println("static method called.");
   }
}

B.java

public class B extends Thread {
   public void run() {
     A.foo(); // static method of A is called from thread.
   }
}

Threads are quite tricky to manage & I would suggest against working on this model If you attempt to pass data to a Thread or a running Thread, you need to do some checking.

The Thread model has changed since the early java days.

If you intend to pass data before the Thread Executes, then use the code from CEHJ & Ajay Singh before calling run()/Start().

If you would like to pass data when the thread is running, its best to create another class to store data or a event-listener-notifier framework.

Classes that uses this could be based from a Singleton class that would allow data to be sent & read from the Calling classes to the Java threads that are running.

This would be also useful to terminate a Thread from the Calling class (using events vars that are picked by the Thread)

Hope this helps.
