Hi, Can anyone help me figure this out please with thread sleep times. I want to make the thread sleep for a random time. but make the time betweem two boundaires. e.g. make the thread sleep between two and four seconds.
Currently I am doing this

but this only works for a single random number. Please help thanks!

often a good idea to surround a sleep with an try-catch:
try{
(code)
}catch(Exception e){}
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
