If Static method is synchronized which object is considered for lock?

The instance of java.lang.Class associated with the class in which the method resides.

just want add something to what Peter Chase said...

For every class loaded, the JVM has a corresponding java.lang.Class instance. So when a static method is synchronized, it's the lock of java.lang.Class instance which is used.

for instance methods there will be one lock per instance and for static methods one lock per class
