I have the URLyBird 1.3.3 with the non-cookie mechansim. My look block locks like :
I choose the 3 tier design and I decide to hide the lock/unlock methods from the client side. My client implements only book, search and delete methods (DataClient interface). I have two type of clients a local one and a remote one (the remote client extends the local one and the Remote interface). This the front tier.
On the middle tier I implement the DBMain in Data class. This class composes two other classes the LockManager and the DataAccess. The DataAccess provides acess to the records and LockManager allows the concurent access to the record. Because the DataAccess is responsible for the I/O operations it has all the methods synchronized. The DataAccess is the back tier (at leat I hope so).
Because I need to indetify every client, each client will have its own DataClient(only book, search and delete methods) instance, every DataClient (instance) contains its own DBMain instance. The DBMain instances are builded with a factory and all the the instaces will share the same LockManager and the DataAccess instances.
I try to draw a picture for only one client:
By "cliet" I mean the client GUI.
Commens & Cirtics are welcomed.
P.S. I don't know why the picure is now diplayed in the way I want to. The DBMain contains the LockManaget and the DataAcces so the "/\" must poit to the DBMain.

My the DataAccess has two componenbts : 1.The DataAccess it defines the access mode to the data from the URLyBird persitent inventory (database) - I/O operations. 2.The DataScheme defines the data architecture for the URLyBird project database.
In a few words the DataAccess implemetation uses a RAF to read/write the database file. The records file pointer are calculated usign the DataScheme.
The DataAccess has a syncronize warpper and it is used in my Data class.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
