Sorry. Is that the AWT application you were
referring to, ealier? (another thread, different issue
Because I meant to ask at the time, why the
application was AWT based, which suggests
to me that it is very old. Swing was a bit shaky
in 1.2, but by Java 1.3, it was quite usable.
Do you need to support older VMs?
If so, what minimum version?
Which then brings me (after a big snip) to..
...Java 1.5 introduced three
entire packages devoted to thread synchronization (java.util.concurrent,
java.util.concurrent.atomic and java.util.concurrent.locks). I think you
need to look into that part of the problem.
...If you actually need to support the application at
a specific Java version (pre. 1.5), it might be a good
idea to mention that on any thread related to the
application, as people would have to 'think back',
even to remember what could be supported in 1.4!
