Class Monitor.Guard

  • Enclosing class:

    public abstract static class Monitor.Guard
    extends java.lang.Object
    A boolean condition for which a thread may wait. A Guard is associated with a single Monitor. The monitor may check the guard at arbitrary times from any thread occupying the monitor, so code should not be written to rely on how often a guard might or might not be checked.

    If a Guard is passed into any method of a Monitor other than the one it is associated with, an IllegalMonitorStateException is thrown.
