      Description

      There is commonality between Thread.sleep and other methods like Object.wait such that the javadoc of the related methods would benefit from at least some of the Thread.sleep specification text in JLS version 3.0 section 17.9. In particular users with idealistic expectations of Thread.sleep might have similar expectations about Object.wait(long) and Thread.join(long).
