InterruptedException is rather tricky because the semantics of Thread.isInterrupted() is rather vague. specifically, it is unclear why someone would interrupt a thread. usually Thread.interrupt() is used to shut things down which requires special handing. thus we propagate it. for example, i'm not clear how you shutdown your poll() method. an easy way to do it would be to use Thread.interrupt().

Its like any synchronous operation that waits throwing an interrupted exception if interrupted by any other thread. Mahadev PS: ill try responding to your other emails as well as soon as possible :).
