Hi John,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Threads aren't the sort of thing you learn about all at once; you really have to learn a little, try it, learn a little more, try it... Learning definitions for technical terms (and at least one of the three terms you've listed isn't related to either Java or threads) isn't going to help if you don't have a framework into which the knowledge will fit.

To that end, you might start with Sun's threading tutorial. After that, if you want to learn more, you might consider one of the available books on the topic; I like "Java Threads" by Scott Oaks and Henry Wong.

In another THREAD I posted a link to a Sun newsletter on Synchronizers.
