I want to ask one question when you enters -1 record only seatbooking method should be blocked and message should be displayed that database is locked, but searching, deleting and record adding method's should work, I mean that only booking should be blocked nothing else on the database.
am i right.

Hi,
Since Sun specify only a 'write' lock in the specification I would think that you should be able to perform searches/lookups the database still. I don't believe the user should be able to remove records when the whole database is locked as this would constitute a 'write'. However, I would also interpret a 'write lock' on the entire database to mean that the user cannot add records either.
How have other people interpreted this?
Cheers,
Steve

Yes even i see it as only write lock.
Becoz in our assignment, we are just asked to lock dataBase when -1 is passed to lock() method.
And our lock() method is Write lock implementation only.
I don't see anywhere else where they have asked anything more than that.
will love to see other's view.
