    Default Waiting until condition

    I'm attempting at making a small 2d game just because I'm bored.

    I am having an issue however. In the game, when two characters come next to each other, a fight begins. If the fight is with the human character, a JPanel below the map activates that is basically just the fight information and has a button for attacking. When the fight is over, there are a bunch of methods I need to call to clean up the looser and adjust the winner's stats.

    In order for that to work, I need to be able to tell my method that manages the battle to wait until one of the fighters loose. Based on my current setup, I have a method called getLooser() that returns either the player that lost or null which indicates neither has lost yet.

    I was thinking about doing a while(getLoose()==null) loop that does nothing, but it seems there should be a better way of doing this. Can anyone point me the correct direction?

    When asking for help, please follow these guidelines to receive better and more prompt help:
    1. Put your code in Java Tags. To do this, put [highlight=java] before your code and [/highlight] after your code.
    2. Give full details of errors and provide us with as much information about the situation as possible.
    3. Give us an example of what the output should look like when done correctly.

    Not sure I fully understand the design, but can't you just have the battle class call a method in the manager class when the looser is set to something other than null?
