If a synchronized method throws an exception in it's execution, the lock accquired by it is released automatically ? Is this true or false;
I think it's false. Am i wrong ? I think that the object will not release the lock if the error occured or does it ?Please explain your answer.

i may not be able to give u a solid answer but... as far as i know when ever a thread looses its control it frees all the locks held by it.so i guess it depends on ur exception handling

hello friend,
As soon the synchronised method throws exception the lock will be released because if it is not released no other threads can access the method.
