"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

@Vee_Mod, this post was in answer to providing explaination on the behaviour which is not available in forum.

It is not a solution but an explaination. For the other questions where solution was required, I have provided links to reference material.

Yield: the current thread stops executing and gives a chance to other (waiting) threads to execute. If the other waiting threads have a lower priority then the current thread keeps on executing.
Join: the current thread calls join on another thread (lets say t1). t1 starts executing and the current thread goes into a waiting state. When t1 finishes the current thread resumes execution.
