NX: another question

Assignment: Housing Contractor
Question:
Suppose 5 clients request for a perticuler record to read. As I am no planning to lock the records while reading, they will be displayed for all of them at the same time.
But if one of them then modify this record, then what about the remaining four? Thier terminal will still show the old non updated record. What to do in that case? Is this allowed ?
Thanks,
manoj

Hi Jmannu:
If you update the four other users when one edits a record, then you're doing "live update". This feature is far beyond what I think the assignment requires.
Live update is appropriate in software that you can charge money for since it is much more complex!

Hi Bob,
So I can assume that the display of non updated record at the other client is fine.
Just wanted to check that part.
Thanks for ur answer.

Hi Jmannu:
No, I don't think many -- if any -- developers are updating other users when a record is edited.
PS: If you have concerns, be sure to document them in your choices/design document.
