Deadlock in java


Deadlock:

when n threads are in waiting state in such a way that thread1 is waiting for some resource which is held by thread2 and thread2 is waiting for some resource held by thread3 and so on thread n is waiting for some resources held by thread1, this situation when all threads are in waiting state and no thread release the lock because it is also in waiting state is known as deadlock.

public class DeadLockExample {

	    //start threads.  
	    thread1.start();  
	    thread2.start();
	    thread3.start();
	  }  
}

Output:

Thread1 locked resource3: Prabhjot
Thread1 locked resource2: Nidhi
Thread1 locked resource1: Amani
