Object Class final void wait()

  • This method is available in java.lang.Object.wait().
  • This method causes the current thread to wait 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.


    final void wait(){


We don't pass any object 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() 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 until execution of another thread

            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 < 100; ++i) {
                total = total + i;

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


D:\Programs>javac Thread1.java

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
