      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      The documentation of java.util.Observable doesn't say if it's safe for multiple threads to call its public methods (e.g., notifyObservers) on a shared instance.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      It complicates programming to have to synchronize calls to notifyObservers, especially when the callback does not require any explicit synchronization.
