Hello Everybody!

I haven't posted here in a long time but I was wondering if anybody knew what makes one get the infamous 44/80 score on locking. These where my scores.

General Considerations (maximum = 100): 99
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30
GUI (maximum = 40): 31
Locking (maximum = 80): 44
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

If it is against the rules to disuss this then can somebody at least give me a hint. I thought my solution was perfect.


Thanks in advance

Hi Udham

Congratulations on passing

What happens if two applications try to create new records simultaneously?

What happens to a client who is waiting for a lock to be released for a record which becomes deleted?

Regards, Andrew

These two have nothing to do with the score 44/80...

Hi, Mike -

Can you please share why you're certain those two points have nothing to do with 44/80?

Thanks!

I know it isn't of much help, but this might be the closest you get to an official answer: The Mysterious 44/80 Locking score
