My application uses a class (called LombokServerConnection) that extends Thread. This is called in the followng way:


try {

new LombokServerConnection(lombok.sock.accept(), lombok.context, lombok.root).start();


catch (IOException e){

System.out.println("Could not get connection " + e);



Will any instance variables of this class (Lombok
ServerConnection) be shared by the threads, or wil lthey all have their own?

You have to care only for those objects you provide with the constructor.

These are:

  • lombok.context,
  • lombok.root

These objects are shared by the threads.

lombok.sock.accept() returns a new socket object and therefore its not a problem (asuming this is a ServerSocket.accept()).

They have all their own variables because you are creating always a new object. Use static class variables or externalize variables into a separate class to share them between the threads. Use synchronization, if you access shared variables.
