    Default synchronization problems

    I hava a very annoying thread problem...
    I have this college project involving threads, which is a game loosely based on missile command.
    the game interface is made of two panels inside a JLayeredPane, one panel being where the missiles are drawn, while the other panel for a cursor.How can I:

    1. show the cursor and the missiles(the missiles are threaded,the cursor is'nt) at the same time... I tried using the synchronized block to no avail.

    2.move the cursor using a keylistener, without waiting for the missile animation to end.

    also note that the missiles are in a separate class, and their thread is given by the jframe main class.

    No one is going to be able to help you without seeing some code first I'm afraid.
    Please break it down so we can take this one step at a time.
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.

    Do you have to use threads in the way you're describing? Honestly, that's not a very good application of threading.
