Hi ranchos! Do I need to care about situations like below: 1. Thread A obtains the lock and does not release it at all 2. Thread B waits forever to obtain the lock, because it was not released by thread A
This is easy to build in the time out, but do I need it? Could be that treated as deadlock? At least I could easily take care about case 1.
HI! Implementation in my code will release the lock always. But sun is using automatic testing on Data class. Their software can produce sytuation like that and call it deadlock. The question is, if I have to take care aout this.
