I am taking the beta 1.4 exam and I am kind of confused about the lock cookie concept. I made a few assumptions that I'm not sure about: 1. the lockCookie attribute is just an arbitrary numeric value that you can increment after the server is locked or unlocked.(this value isn't obtained from any core library function calls) 2. There should only be one lockCookie and this must be released by clients during an unexpected event such as a client losing a connection before the lock is released. Again these are just assumption I made. Let me know what you think.
