    Default java thread programing.

    how to stop thread running at middle of function?
    I want to run two functions in parallel,both functions are recursive and they use common variables, so in each iteration they need other function variable to run, How can I stop one thread at the middle of running and switch to other function until the needed variable gets corresponding variable and again switch to first function and run the function from stopping point?

    Are you looking for the wait() and notify() functions? Did you read the concurrency tutorial?
