Can two threads call two different synchronized instance methods of an Object

No. If a object has synchronized instance methods then the Object itself is used a lock object for controlling the synchronization. Therefore all other instance methods need to wait until previous method call is completed. See the below sample code which demonstrate it very clearly. The Class Common has 2 methods called synchronizedMethod1() and synchronizedMethod2() MyThread class is calling both the methods

public class Common {

public synchronized void synchronizedMethod1() {

System.out.println(“synchronizedMethod1 called”);

try {

Thread.sleep(1000);

} catch (InterruptedException e) {

e.printStackTrace();

}

System.out.println(“synchronizedMethod1 done”);

}

public synchronized void synchronizedMethod2() {

System.out.println(“synchronizedMethod2 called”);

try {

Thread.sleep(1000);

} catch (InterruptedException e) {

e.printStackTrace();

}

System.out.println(“synchronizedMethod2 done”);

}

}

public class MyThread extends Thread {

private int id = 0;

private Common common;

 

public MyThread(String name, int no, Common object) {

super(name);

common = object;

id = no;

}

public void run() {

System.out.println(“Running Thread” + this.getName());

try {

if (id == 0) {

common.synchronizedMethod1();

} else {

common.synchronizedMethod2();

}

} catch (Exception e) {

e.printStackTrace();

}

}

public static void main(String[] args) {

Common c = new Common();

MyThread t1 = new MyThread(“MyThread-1”, 0, c);

MyThread t2 = new MyThread(“MyThread-2”, 1, c);

t1.start();

t2.start();

}

}
