public DbLock lock_get(int locker, int flags, Dbt obj, int lock_mode)
The DbEnv.lock_get method acquires a lock from the lock table, returning
information about it in
a DbLock object.
The locker argument specified to DbEnv.lock_get is an unsigned
32-bit integer quantity. It represents the entity requesting or releasing
The flags value must be set to 0 or
the following value:
- If a lock cannot be granted because the requested lock conflicts with an
throw a DbLockNotGrantedException immediately instead of waiting
for the lock to become available.
The obj argument is an untyped byte string that specifies the
object to be locked or released. Applications using the locking
subsystem directly while also doing locking via the Berkeley DB access methods
must take care not to inadvertently lock objects that happen to be equal
to the unique file IDs used to lock files. See
Access method locking conventions
for more information.
The mode argument is used as an index into the environment's
lock conflict matrix. When using the default lock conflict matrix,
mode must be set to one of the following values:
- read (shared)
- write (exclusive)
- intention to write (shared)
- intention to read (shared)
- intention to read and write (shared)
See DbEnv.set_lk_conflicts and Standard Lock Modes for more information on the lock conflict matrix.
Otherwise, the DbEnv.lock_get method throws an exception that encapsulates a non-zero error value on
The DbEnv.lock_get method may fail and throw an exception encapsulating a non-zero error for the following conditions:
- An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.
- The maximum number of locks has been reached.
If the operation was selected to resolve a deadlock, the
DbEnv.lock_get method will fail and
throw a DbDeadlockException exception.
The DbEnv.lock_get method may fail and throw an exception for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system methods.
If a catastrophic error has occurred, the DbEnv.lock_get method may fail and
throw a DbRunRecoveryException,
in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
