Hi Sanjeev,

See the code below:

Try to run this, with Line1 and Line 2 and without Line 1 and Line 2.
Without Line 1 - Line 2, the output is indeterministic but with wait(), the output is surely "sum = 55".
with wait, main waits for thread ww to notify it before it could print the
result.



See the book for more detail!


Regards,
cmbhatt
