I can't understand why the unlock method must throw RecordNotFoundException.
My unlock signature looks like this:
public void unlock(int recNo, long cookie) throws RecordNotFoundException,
SecurityException;

Can someone help on this issue?

Tks,
Rod.

If you see no reason to ever throw it then don't...
It's there for if you want it. You might for example check whether a record exists before trying to unlock it (mind I don't advise you do, it makes some things a lot more complex).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
