Two threads, thread A and B are created by an application. I need to call a method called M() in thread A from thread B. Does thread A execute the method in its own time slice or is the method executed in B's time slice? I have a choice as to where to put the method M. It can be in the application's main thread, or in A or in B. The method will always be called by B. Which thread should M belong to in order to achieve the best performance? Does this still apply if the method M is static?
