    How to handle multiple users editing data in a flex app

    SSzretter

      How do you handle record locking in a flex (flash builder 4) application with multiple users?

      It is using zend amf to talk to a database (mongodb or mysql).

      For example, if user 1 loads a client record for edit and user 2 loads the same client record for edit, there is going to be data lost if user 1 saves their edit and then user 2 saves their edit - not knowing user 1 was editing.

      I suppose I could implement my own system by having a lock flag or lock table and when a record is opened, check for lock / set the lock. However I am hoping there is already something people use to do this that is tested / proven.

      Thanks!
