Java Monitor Pattern

In Java, each object provides an implicit monitor lock also called as intrinsic lock, which is used by its synchronized methods to ensure that only one thread can execute a critical section of code at a time. The critical section of code should allow only one thread to execute it at a time to avoid race conditions and is defined by synchronized methods. However, one disadvantage of intrinsic lock is that it offers only one mutex.
