I'm not positive on how this would work. I have a synchronized HashMap of records called recordCache. Inside this cache I store (recNo, Record) as the key value pairs.

When I lock a record to be modified/updated/deleted, I lock on a Record and not on the entire recordCache. This way, when I unlock the record and call notifyAll(), I will only be waking up threads waiting for that particular record. There are times, however, when I want to lock the entire recordCache. So my question is, how will synchronizing on recordCache and synchronizing on an element inside recordCache effect each other?

Hi Jared!

I supose you have something similar to:

and for records:

My question is: Are those blocks nested in any case?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
