Hi Friends,
I am trying to implement concurrence processing in java by threads.
From a main process I want to start 2 child processes. Then main process has to wait until all of its child processes got completed. Here 2 child processes can run parallel.
So how can I stop main thread until all children execution get completed.
Thanks in advance,
Corey McGlone
