Traditional Locking

Traditional locking is the default locking mode and requires no configuration to implement. It uses the locking functions of the Micro Focus file handler. Locks are placed dynamically on the root segment at time of access and held until the unit-of-work reaches a commit point.

Locks are placed for both read and update DLI calls with no distinction between read locks, update intent locks or update locks. This implements the highest application isolation, which results in increased data contention and greater risk of deadlock.
