Hi ,

I�m using the following map to manage my locked records


The key value is the record number, and the contents is the cookie. Is this approach correct ? May I use the Java 5 generics to define my map ?

My lock method is

Supose we have two clients trying to lock the same record. Before the put command, Client A put his cookie in the map. After that, client B put his own cookie. How to avoid this situation ? Do we have to synchronize the whole method ? Inserting synchronized to my method signature, Am I changing my interface specifications ?

Thanks in advance,

M�rcio

Hi M�rcio,

Yes, you certainly can, and it is a good idea to do so.

Supose we have two clients trying to lock the same record. Before the put command, Client A put his cookie in the map. After that, client B put his own cookie. How to avoid this situation ? Do we have to synchronize the whole method ? Inserting synchronized to my method signature, Am I changing my interface specifications ?

According to the JLS "an interface may be implemented by a method that is declared strictfp or native or synchronized in a class that implements the interface."

Regards, Andrew
