Using threads

Hi everyone,

I would really appreciate your help with a program that has been bugging me for over a week now.

Essentially I am using threads to control balls within a Jframe (10 balls). When i click within the frame the balls start their motion again from this point. There is also a 10 pixel wide invisible line down the center of the frame that the ball rebound off when they hit it.

What i would like to achieve is for the balls to rebound of the wall if they are designated as even as stick to the wall if they are odd. I have worked out that I will need to use a modulo such as i%2==1 to work out whether it is odd for example.

I would appreciate your time and suggestions.

(there is a 'ball' class that I have not included so as to keep the problem area as concise as possible)
