The notifyAll() and wait() Methods

The notifyAll() and wait() methods can be invoked only by the thread that holds the lock.
The notifyAll() method
The notifyAll() method notifies all the threads waiting on the monitor held by the current thread and wakes them up.
public synchronized int get()
while (available == false)

catch (InterruptedException e)
available = false;
notifyAll();            // notifies Producer
return contents;
In the above example the Producer/Consumer example, the Consumer thread calls the get() method, so the Consumer thread holds the monitor during the execution of get(). At the end of the get() method, the call to notifyAll() wakes up the Producer thread that is waiting to get the monitor. Now, the Producer thread can get the monitor and proceed.
If multiple threads are waiting for a monitor, the Java runtime system chooses one of the waiting threads to run, making no commitments or guarantees about which thread will be chosen.
The wait() method
The wait() method causes the current thread to wait (possibly forever) until another thread notifies it of a condition change.
We use wait() in conjunction with notify() or notifyAll() to coordinate the activities of multiple threads using the same resources.
public synchronized int get()
while (available == false)
wait();            // waits for notifyAll() call from Producer
} catch (InterruptedException e)
available = false;
return contents;
The Object class contains two other versions of the wait() method:
wait(long timeout)
waits for notification or until the timeout period has elapsed--timeout is measured in milliseconds.
wait(long timeout, int nanos)
waits for notification or until timeout milliseconds plus nanos nanoseconds have elapsed.
It has a number of methods, some of which are static.
