Subject Re: Problem: multiple browsers and session state

This is application-independant, in that it's not just struts this affects

One solution is to look for potential collisions and implement a lease/lock
strategy on the resources that my collide (similar to std. file/resource
locking), although with a lease on the lock due to the stateless nature of
the app. in question.

When I've had problems where multiple users edit the same data, I've
generally taken the easy option and decided that the users have to have at
least an iota of sense and collaberate with each other.
