    Default synchronization

    hi could someone please help me understand how interference might occur in this program ?

    class ThreadTest implements Runnable {
    static String printString = null;
    private String threadName;
    ThreadTest(String s) { threadName = s; }
    public void run() {
    int i = 0;
    while (i < 100) {
    if (printString == null) {
    printString = threadName + (++i);
    } else {
    printString = null;
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    Thread t1 = new Thread(new ThreadTest("a"));
    Thread t2 = new Thread(new ThreadTest("b"));

    its meant to print a1 to a100 and b1 to b100...

    I think you first need to understand concept of threads very clearly........
    lets try this way
    if the output is as you expected....what's the use of setting priority of a thread?

    What does it currently print when its executed? Do you expect something else to print?
    Please explain.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
