Hi, what is the difference between wait() and waitForAll()? wait() causes the thread to give up the lock on the object that calls wait(). What about waitForAll()? How are they different?

The waitForAll() method is has to do with the media tracker class. If you are loading several images, you can call it to wait for all images to be loaded to continue processing.
