This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am working on B&S 2.1.1 and in the design & analysis phase.
I am not quite sure if there's any locking needed when running the application in a standalone mode.
It mentioned in the specs "You may assume that at any moment, at most one program is accessing the database file; therefore your locking system only needs to be concerned with multiple concurrent client of your server".
Does that mean locking should be implemented only for the network-mode ? Please advise.
