What 'synchronized' does to a method

When you synchronize a method of a class, as in:

 public synchronized int getAge()

that method will acquire a monitor lock before execution. If the synchronized method is static, e.g. a class method, the lock is obtained over the class. Otherwise, the lock is obtained over an instance object of the class.
