Oggetto: Forcing a record lock

Hi All,

I need to force a record lock on a particular record in order to simulate 
a problem.  I'm trying to fix an issue where a program abends because a 
record is locked.  However, in our system, the program does not abend and 
the file that is supposedly locked has a shared lock.  I need to be able 
to lock the record for a significant amount of time (about 60 seconds) in 
order to cause the abend.  What are the different ways I can do this?
