What do you think "synchronize a class" means?

For example we can Synchronize a method or block of statements by using the keyword 'Synchronized'..

Similarly is there a way to Synchronize a class also?

That doesn't really make sense, because a class isn't a block of executable code. But you can mark all the methods as synchronized, in which case only one can be called at a time. Is that what you mean?

But is it possible by declaring a class as 'static'..

No. You'll have to synchronize each method.

"static" has nothing to do with synchronization, by the way, but maybe that was unintentional.

There should be some useful information in the Java Tutorials.

we can not use synchronized key word for a class. we can use it for a method -

EX-
public synchronized void display() {
System.out.println("Hello!!!");
}

Nested classes can be declared static.
Top-level classes cannot be declared static.

No you can't declare a class as static only methods and variables.
