Given the two examples below, what happens if they are compiled and executed?

Example №1:

public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        new Thread(){
            { this.setDaemon(true); }

            public void run() {
                while(true) {
                    System.out.println("Thread is running!");
                }
            }
        }.start();
    }
}
Example №2:

public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        new Thread() {

            public void run() {
                while(true) {
                    System.out.println("Thread is running!");
                }
            }
        }.start();
    }
}
Explanation
Example №1:
The created thread will be of a Daemon type, which means that it will be stopped once the main application ends.
Example №2:
The second example, creates non-Daemon thread, hence it will be executed until its run() method ends, it's while(true) statement invoking an endless loop.
