Which of the following may pause/stop the current thread?
1) Calling Thread.Yield()
2) Calling stop() on an object of class Thread
3) Calling someObject.wait()
4) Calling someObj.notify()
5) Calling waitForAll() on a MediaTracker Object
The answer is 1,2,3,5 .. but I would think the answer should just be 1,2,3 .. what is 'waitForAll()' just a user-defined method? Is that what I should assume? I assumed I missed something in the Thread section.

JQPlus is correct. Most times when you see waitFor... type of methods, they are methods that will release locks until something has finished.
