Example text

On Friday and then run a query looking for overlaps. The next person would try to insert an overlapping request and, upon looking for overlaps, would become blocked (waiting for the newly inserted data to become available for reading). In that blocking read database, our application would be apparently well behaved, though it could just as easily deadlock (a concept covered in the chapter on locking) if we both inserted our rows and then attempted to read each other’s data. Our checks on overlapping resource allocations would have happened one after the other, never concurrently.

Without correct concurrency control, you will corrupt the integrity of your database because something that works in isolation will not work as you expect in a multiuser situation. Your application will run slower than it should because you’ll end up waiting for data. Your application will lose its ability to scale because of locking and contention issues. As the queues to access a resource get longer, the wait gets longer and longer. An analogy here would be a backup at a tollbooth. If cars arrive in an orderly, predictable fashion, one after the other, there won’t ever be a backup.

Knowing and understanding how they work will help you immensely in dealing with these issues. Taking an application from Oracle to SQL Server exposes SQL Server’s blocking reads and deadlock issues—it goes both ways. For example, I was asked to help convert some Transact SQL (the stored procedure language for SQL Server) into PL/SQL. The developer doing the conversion was complaining that the SQL queries in Oracle returned the “wrong” answer. The queries looked like this: 34 Chapter 1 ■ Developing Successful Oracle Applications declare l_some_variable varchar2(25); begin if ( some_condition ) then l_some_variable := f( ...
