Class ThreadStartEvent

public class ThreadStartEvent
extends Event

"Notification of a new running thread in the target VM. The new thread can be the result of a call to Thread.start() or the result of attaching a new thread to the VM though JNI. The notification is generated by the new thread some time before its execution starts. Because of this timing, it is possible to receive other events for the thread before this event is received. (Notably, Method Entry Events and Method Exit Events might occur during thread initialization. It is also possible for the VirtualMachine AllThreads command to return a thread before its thread start event is received.

Note that this event gives no information about the creation of the thread object which may have happened much earlier, depending on the VM being debugged." -- JDWP 1.4.2
