Hi all,

In mid-july last year this thread was started with the following information:

The rest of the first mail in this thread is available here:

Does anyone know if any kind of lock debugging tutorial or related information
was ever added to the wiki [1] (as Kathey mentioned last year) or any of the
manuals? I searched the wiki but was not able to find anything related to
locking in Derby.

Debugging locking situations seems to be a rather frequently occurring topic on
derby-user. As I'm trying to learn more about this topic, I have found useful
information by searching the manuals _and_ the mail archives. It would be good
to have some kind of wiki page gathering hints, tips and links to further
information (I think it would save users a bit of time and effort when trying to
debug their applications), so please let me know if this already exists.
Improving the manuals could be an alternative solution.
