This is another program which is almost similar to the above one.
But the output is not as the above one.



output:
Hai starts : Thread-1
method1***************0
method1***************1
method1***************2
method1***************3
method1***************4
Hai Ends : Thread-1
Other1 starts : Thread-1
method2-------0
method2-------1
method2-------2
method2-------3
method2-------4
Other1 Ends : Thread-1
Hai starts : Thread-2
method1***************0
method1***************1
method1***************2
method1***************3
method1***************4
Hai Ends : Thread-2
Other1 starts : Thread-2
method2-------0
method2-------1
method2-------2
method2-------3
method2-------4
Other1 Ends : Thread-2


Please explain me why both the outputs are different even we use synchronization
Sorry for consuming so much space

What do you think is "strange" about the output you provided?

In the 1st program thread 2 is starting to print method 1 without the thread 1 printing method 2
But in the 2nd Program Thread2 waits until the 1st Thread prints both the methods 1 and 2

In both example programs that is purely coincidental; the order is not predictable.
It's also possible for thread 2 to complete invocations of method 1 and 2 before thread 1 gets its turn.
Adding the keyword synchronized to a method only ensures that no two threads can execute that method (or any other body of code that synchonizes on the same lock) concurrently.
