Hi All,

I have few questions about Threads, I appreciate your valuable answers.

How can two threads share data?

Suppose I have the following class:

class Abc{

synchronized mthod1(){

}

synchronized mthod2(){

}

}

If thread t1 is accessing mthod1, can thread t2 access mthod2()? (Am I correct that this is not possible?)

Thanks

Ayub

I don't see how your two questions are related, but I can answer them both, anyway.

First, two threads can share data simply by holding references to the same object. They can both manipulate the data in that one object.

Second, two threads can't call those two methods on the same instance of Abc at the same time. If you have two different Abc instances, then one thread can be calling one method while another thread calls the other.

We can fix it! We just need some baling wire, some WD-40, a bit of duct tape and this tiny ad:
