RE: Locking records in DB2



fixed

I'm trying to make sure that if a user decides they are going to open a 
particular record for edit mode to make changes, that another user can't 
get into that same record and make changes and overwrite each other.

Do you have a better suggestion than the record lock then in a web app? 
That's not being sarcastic either, I'm open to suggestions :)

You WANT to put a record lock on a row? And how long do you intend to
hold this lock? The suggestion of "...FOR UPDATE" might work w/in the
servlet or JSP, but once you return to the user there's no guarantee
that the user will be serviced by the same iSeries job next time.

Holding a record lock on a web app is not something you usually want to
do. I guess if you really need to do it, the first thing that comes to
mind is to hold the lock not in the java program, but in a surrogate job
you launch specifically for this task.
