The class SynchronizedObject (see Figure C-13) serves as the parent class for synchronized objects. Synchronized objects incorporate a mutex-based lock mechanism, allowing them to be used concurrently by multiple threads.

SynchronizedObject includes the nested classes SynchronizationObject , which is its mutex object, and ExclusiveZone , which locks a SynchronizationObject .

SynchronizedObject belongs to the namespace CppUnit . It is declared in SynchronizedObject.h and implemented in SynchronizedObject.cpp .
