Object Class final void wait(long ms , int ns)

  • This method is available in java.lang.Object.wait(long ms, int ns).
  • This method causes the current thread to wait for a specified amount of time in milliseconds and nanoseconds until another thread notification by calling notify() or notifyAll() method of the object.
  • This method throws an InterruptedException when other thread interrupted current thread.
  • This method can't override because it is final.
  • The time will be given in the method is of milliseconds and nanoseconds.


    final void wait(long ms, int ns){


Here we are passing two-time parameter one is in milliseconds and another is in nanoseconds(How long a thread has to wait i.e. we have to mention time in milliseconds and if want extra time then we can mention time in nanoseconds as well) as a parameter in the method of the Object class.

Return value:

The return type of this method is void that means this method returns nothing after execution.

Java program to demonstrate example of Object Class wait(long ms , int ns) method

import java.lang.Object;

public class Thread1 {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {

        // Create an object of Thread2

        Thread2 t2 = new Thread2();

        // By calling start() so Thread start() will exceute


        synchronized(t2) {

            System.out.println("Main thread trying to call wait()");

            // By calling wait() causes the current thread to wait 
            // for 1000 milliseconds until another   thread notification

            System.out.println("Main Thread get notification here");



class Thread2 extends Thread {

    int total = 0;

    public void run() {

        synchronized(this) {

            System.out.println("Thread t2 starts notification");

            for (int i = 0; i < 50; ++i) {

                total = total + i;

            System.out.println("Thread t2 trying to given notification");






D:\Programs>java Thread1
Main thread trying to call wait()
Thread t2 starts notification
Thread t2 trying to given notification
Main Thread get notification here
