Hi all,
When a thread enters a synchronized method, whether that particular thread acquires the lock only for that method or the whole object in which the method is contained.

Example :

As (I hope) you've discovered, the synchronized keyword invokes the object lock, or -- in the case of static code -- the class lock.

As of 1.5, you can use a ReentrantLock to lock specific blocks of code.
