Hi

There are two persons in a bank. One person puts 1'000'000 times a certain amount of money in an account, at the same time an other person gets the same amount of money from the same account 1'000'000 times. This is my code so far:

[code=javaclass Account // Konto
{
private float balance; // Kontostand

public void setBalance(float balance)
{
this.balance = balance;
}

public float getBalance()
{
return balance;
}
}

class Bank
{
private Account[] account;

public Bank()
{
account = new Account[100];
for(int i = 0; i < account.length; i++)
{
account[i] = new Account();
}
}

public void getMoney(int accountNumber, float amount)
{
synchronized(account[accountNumber])
{
float oldBalance = account[accountNumber].getBalance();
float newBalance = oldBalance - amount;
account[accountNumber].setBalance(newBalance);
}
}

public void putMoney(int accountNumber, float amount)
{
synchronized(account[accountNumber])
{
float oldBalance = account[accountNumber].getBalance();
float newBalance = oldBalance + amount;
account[accountNumber].setBalance(newBalance);
}
}
}


class Clerk extends Thread
{
private Bank bank;

public Clerk(String name, Bank bank)
{
super(name);
this.bank = bank;
start();
}

public void run()
{
for(int i = 0; i < 1000000; i++)
{
/*
* set account number
*/
int accountNumber = 0;

/*
* set transfer amount
*/
float amount = 100;

bank.putMoney(accountNumber, amount);
bank.getMoney(accountNumber, amount);
}
}
}

public class Banking
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
Bank myBank = new Bank();
Clerk Andrea = new Clerk("Andrea", myBank);
Clerk Petra = new Clerk("Petra", myBank);

}
}][/code]

Everything is fine so far, the code compiles. But I do not have any idea at the moment, how to continue. Who can help me?

Regards, Urs

There appears to be a lot of code missing from the code you have provided.

I could help, but if you are in the middle of development I guess you are not stuck.
