Question: When should I use notify() and when notifyAll() methods on threads?
Answer: Generally it is more reliable to use notifyAll() method. Notify() method wakes up a single thread that is waiting on this object's monitor. If any threads are waiting on this object, one of them is chosen to be awakened. The choice is arbitrary and occurs at the discretion of the implementation. A thread waits on an object's monitor by calling one of the wait methods. Since it is internally implemented we do not know exactly which thread will be chosen.
This method should only be called by a
thread that is the owner of this object's monitor. A thread becomes the owner of
the object's monitor in one of three ways:
By executing the body of a synchronized
statement that synchronizes on the object.
It is much safer to use from the
beginning notifyAll() method and later trying to optimize your program you can
try to switch to notify(). You have no idea which thread will be awakened. You
must be sure that every waiting thread will be able to continue if you use
notify() method. The behavior of your program will be more predictable.
Question: The clear-Method in the java.util.Calendar-Class doesnt behave like I suggest. I want to clear the hour-field in a Date. If I use Calendar.clear(Calendar.HOUR) the hour is not reset. If I use Calendar.clear(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DATE) the hour is not reset also. Only if I invoke both methods the hour is reset. (java version "1.2.2")
It is known Java bug.
