The Object.wait() and Object.notifyAll() methods are related to synchronizing and can be called for a non-threaded object.
The wait() method means semantically "I want a lock on this object, tell me when it is available". The notifyAll() method means semantically "notify all awaiting threads that I'm done".
Was that helpful or did I make things worse?
