Its pertinent that in case of threads working on some instance methods, it acquires the monitor or lock of that object and then goes in to operate.
I am thinking that there might be some kind of registry with this instance information and some flag in there that says whether its acquired or not.
I was just wandering where this information is stored and how is it shared between threads. It'll be great to know in case someone sheds some light on this.

This, of course, is an implementation detail of the JVM, and may vary from OS to OS, and from version to version. Having said that, since most of the thread stuff has been delegated to the underlying Operating System threading environment, it would be safe to assume that every object has access to a mutex lock and condition variable.
