Class ConditionVariable

java.lang.Object
  extended by android.os.ConditionVariable

public class ConditionVariable
extends Object

Class that implements the condition variable locking paradigm.

This differs from the built-in java.lang.Object wait() and notify() in that this class contains the condition to wait on itself. That means open(), close() and block() are sticky. If open() is called before block(), block() will not block, and instead return immediately.

This class uses itself is at the object to wait on, so if you wait() or notify() on a ConditionVariable, the results are undefined.
