In Andrew's book there's usage of writeLock().lock() for persist method. Here in my case I think its not required. dataSectionOffset is always same(It is set in the beginning only once when the server starts). dbInfo instance stores this kind of data, like dataSectionOffset and recordLength. synchronization of dbFile (RandomAccessFile) I guess is enough for this function. Let me know if I am wrong..!!???

<code>


long dataSectionOffset = dbInfo.getDataOffset();
StringBuffer padding = new StringBuffer();
StringBuffer content = new StringBuffer();

for(int fieldIndex = 0 ; fieldIndex < dbInfo.getNumberOfFields(); fieldIndex++){
int paddingLength = dbInfo.getFieldLength(fieldIndex) - data[fieldIndex].length();
padding.setLength(paddingLength);
content.append(data[fieldIndex]+padding);
}

dbFile.seek(dataSectionOffset);
long recordLength = dbInfo.getRecordLength();

synchronized(dbFile){
if(create==true)
dbFile.seek(dbFile.length());
else
dbFile.seek((recNo-1)*recordLength);
dbFile.write(content.toString().getBytes());
}
}
</code>
