I wanted to know that if notify() method is given to multiple threads that are waiting, what is the process or order in which they are woken up? I know they are woken up arbitarily, but what I specifically want to know is that how can a user wake up a particular thread of his choice if he wants to do work with it?

One way that you can handle this is to keep a reference of the Thread's name that you want to wake up. Use the notifyAll() method instead of notify() and put all threads that don't have the name that you are looking for back asleep. Hope this helps.

You asked the same question in the JavaRanch forum, and that has been moved to the correct forum here
I'm going to ask for this thread to be closed and direct anyone who wants to participate to the other forum.
Please don't ask the same question in multiple forums.
I agree. Here's the link:
