Supported Features

OPEN ALLOWING READERS is not supported by Oracle. Your ACUCOBOL-GT runtime configuration file determines how to interpret this phrase. Set the variable STRENGTHEN_LOCKS to 1 to cause this phrase to be treated as OPEN ALLOWING NO OTHERS. Set the variable to 0 to cause the phrase to be treated as OPEN ALLOWING ALL. The default value is 0.

Transactions are enforced in Oracle. Within a transaction, records locked by I/O operations that modify, delete, or otherwise result in a COBOL record-lock, remain locked until a COMMIT WORK or a ROLLBACK WORK is issued, or until your COBOL program encounters a COMMIT or ROLLBACK verb.
