    Default Synchronization on object

    Respected PROGRAMMERS,
    when a synchronized block is used for synchronization on an object instance, then threads compete to get into object's implicit monitor. And once, any particular thread enters into the monitor, any other thread has to wait for entering into it.

    // some code here
    // no function call

    must not enforce taking any particular type of object.
    Thus any object type can be used here because every object has its implicit monitor.

    Kindly reply me is it true?

    Default Re: Synchronization on object

    Yes, every object has its own monitor. Read the API doc for the methods of the Object class.
