Hi,all.
I want to make it clear if the method notify() only wakes up a thread which has called the method wait() ?
I got a program.I find that there's no wait() in it.So what does notify() do ?

Bartender,
I think notify wothout wait() will do nothing. That means, no compile time exception or runtime error and just only goes to check whether any thread is waiting wait set/pool there? Found nothiny as waiting so returns.....correct me if i m wrong.

Ashik:
You are right, but remember that this method should be called by a thread that is the owner of this object's monitor. So if it's not called in that way you will get an: IllegalMonitorStateException
