Hi,
If we declare a method as public synchronized static void doThings(){}

then will the executing thread automatically take the Class lock?
If yes then can you explain how?

thanks in advance
mayur

because one method static pertence the class then if you lock the o method static you isn't lock one instance and so the class.
always that you use static the atributte pertence the class. don't forget.
