Lock table in database when doing write operation.

Based on my understanding, when we do write operation to a table in database (MYSQL) we lock the table from bein accessed by another processess. But not when we do read operation.
Is this true?

If yes, then is there a way I can turn of some settings so the write operation will not lock the table?
Is there any disadvantages in doing this?

Thanks in advance for the help.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
