Maybe this is a dumb question, but...

look at this snippet:

Let's say two Threads are using the constants constA and constB concurrently. First time the class is loaded, both constants will be initialized. Do I have to synchronize the code in the constructor or is "class-loading" always automatically synchronized (because the class loader will load the class exactly one time) ?

thanks in advance!

Jens

No synchronization is required. A class will be initialized exactly once.
