      Description



      Name: akC45999 Date: 12/16/98



      According contract of the "java.lang.Thread" class method run() must be nonstatic.
       
      Nonstatic methods are called by invokevirtual instruction. And JVM
      specification reads (instruction "invokevirtual", section "Linking
      Exceptions"):
      ...
      Otherwise, if the resolved method is a class (static) method, the
      invokevirtual instruction throws an IncompatibleClassChangeError.

      Therefore, if method run() described as static the exception
      IncompatibleClassChangeError must be thrown.

      But different JDK versions give different results.
      See sources and logs below.

      The test couldn't be written in java. Javac does not allow
      statment "public static void run()" in class which extends java.lang.Thread.
