· toString

Summary  |  Top
   public native String toString() 

Convert this lock to a string representation. This is native because we want to avoid dependencies on java.lang.* classes that may not be loaded into the space. (Specifically: java.lang.Integer, java.lang.Double, etc. for printing the name of the owner thread and the hash code.)
