Hi all,
chap 7 states:
"vector and hashtable are synchronized to be thread safe" and " when we say that vector and Hashtable are synchronized,we just mean that the key methods of the class are synchronized"- can anyone explain how this works??

Key methods on hashtable and vector like
hashtable - put, get and Vector - add etc are synchronized.

With "key methods", the book means "the most important methods" in this case.

Hi Jesper,
Thanks for the reply. regarding the first line - threads are synchronized to be thread safe - is it like " one thread cant access the hashtable when it is being accessed by other thread" - is my understanding right or is there something more to that statement??

thanks in advance!!!
