public final class: ConditionLock [javadoc | source]
ConditionLock is a Lock with a built in state variable. This class provides the ability to wait for the state variable to be set to a desired value and then acquire the lock.

The lockWhen() and unlockWith() methods can be safely intermixed with the lock() and unlock() methods. However if there is a thread waiting for the state variable to become a particular value and you simply call Unlock(), that thread will not be able to acquire the lock until the state variable equals its desired value.
