Typically, if a Java method throws
InterruptedException, it will have reset the interrupt status before doing so. In the example above, you’re just restoring it and preserving a flag to indicate the thread had once been interrupted.

You should generally never just catch the exception and ignore it; it may cripple code depending on the status flag for correct behaviour. In the same way, it’s rarely a good idea to catch and exception and just log it, especially in the case of
