[concurrency-interest] Passing argument to start method withExecutor

Hi Mohan,

Tool implements Runnable but it is not intended to be used as a Runnable. It is a main application class that is intended to be subclassed. No connection to threads or executors and no connection between the fact that Thread has a start() method and so does Tool.

  Subject: [concurrency-interest] Passing argument to start method withExecutor


      I am trying to work with sun.jvm.hotspot.tools.Tool which is a Runnable. But it requires the start method to be called with arguments. It looks like an older API.   

      If I use ExecutorService executor = newFixedThreadPool(4); and execute  sun.jvm.hotspot.tools.Tool then the contract is violated. 

  Is there a way to use an Executor and ensure the start method is called with arguments ?

  ThreadPoolExecutor calls 'start' deep in the code but  I am not sure how to call a custom 'start' method which calls the thread's 'start' method in turn.
