Can some one explain why the first thread runs printing A and B , where as the second thread throws an exception.
The source is http://www.javaranch.com


Is it because in the second program the object doesnot have a refernce name?

The second one throws MonitorStateException. This is because when you do this

synchronized(new Object())//separate object
{
new Object.notifyAll();//separate object
}

as you may know that you must hold the lock of the object that you call wait, notify and notifyAll on. But in this case, the synchronized block uses a different object and the notifyAll call uses a separate object of the Object class..
