No. It will not stop executing. The thread which called this interrupt() continues as usual. The thread on which the interrupt() is invoked may/may not respond to this interruption. There is a detailed discussion here. You may want to refer to this. Also if you search this forum using the search facility at the top-right corner of each page, with 'interrupt()' keyword you may find many interesting discussions.
