The User Interface must allow the user to book a selected record. This action must interact with other concurrent clients and update the database accordingly

This sounds like if a client books a record, then all other clients that are displaying the same record must be automatically updated with the new value. What's a good strategy for implementing this? Should the server just notify every client of the updated record? Do we have to worry about this in non-networked mode? Thanks for any replies.

I think the spec is taling about synchronizing the concurrent update calls from multiple clients. You don't have to nofify any clients.

Hey Sai. How are you? Haven't seen you around in a while. Are you taking the Beta too?

Sai,
I am taking the beta exam also and I interpreted this the same way that Tybon did. How can you be sure that this is what they mean?
