I have a class calling IndexSearcherManager,
it has a set of synchronized methods, because it is a web application (so multi-threaded environment) and
these methods do operations on a file system.

But sometimes in my code I need to 'lock' the access to this file system.

I want the requests to these synchronized methods been waiting until I unlock it again.

How can I do this ?

Thank u.
