I  read the following texts to create a deadlock.

in general, deadlock occurs when two or more threads each obtain two or more locks, but don't obtain them in the same order:

// T1
synchronized (a) {
    synchronized (b) {
// T2
synchronized (b) {
    synchrnoized(a) {

Now, i want to create a deadlock which conforms the above.

but i am confused how to write..

few issues i am stuck..
1)whether T1 and T2 are generated  from the same class .
2)whether a,b are the objects of the same shared resource.
3)how do i write the above sychronized methods ? see, Runnable class has only 1 method run() for thread activities do  i write there 4 synchronized statements in it ?

I will appreciate if you please  provide me a deadlock code which conforms the above  code snippet.
