Why does each Object in Java has a corresponding lock?
What is the utility of having such a functionality.

Well..locks are used to obtain lock on any object.As simple as that...

seee when multiple threads are working on a single object and you want to synchronize then each thread should obtain lock on object before operating...
it is same as monitor concept in operating systems...
