B&S locking solution - consumes no CPU cycles

I have the B&S project. I implemented the LockManager for this project and I wanted to solve the problem of a thread that must consume no CPU cycles after it tries to lock a resource that has been locked by another client. I thought that it is more important to meet this requirement than the code simplicity (another requirement . I read some other posts with this problem but there was no code posted.

My solution includes 2 HashMaps
1.cookieMap - Used for maintaining the locked records key - recordNumber, value - cookie returned when the record has been locked
2.recordLocks - Used for keeping locks for each record that has been locked.
The LockManager is used as a member in the Data class which is also responsible for detecting if a record for which a client waits to lock was updated/deleted until it acquires the lock.

Please take a look and advise me

Hello Pepe,

it would be much more easier to understand your idea if you provide the code of yoru LockManager as well
