Friends,

Please clear the below doubt :

What is the difference between Object lock and bucket lock? How does it related to HashTable?

Not me. I googled for "bucket lock" and the second link which came back was this post. (The first link was a picture of an English cottage named "Bucket Lock"). The rest of the first page of links aren't any more helpful. So I would suggest you go back to wherever you heard, or read, that phrase and ask whoever made it up.

A hashtable will hash elements into separate regions -- oftened call "bucket". So... I would gather that the term "bucket lock" is a term made up by your colleague to mean the lock that is protecting the buckets.

Of course, to be sure, you should go back and ask.
