module Sequel::Plugins::OptimisticLocking

  1. lib/sequel/plugins/optimistic_locking.rb

This plugin implements a simple database-independent locking mechanism to ensure that concurrent updates do not override changes. This is best implemented by a code example:

class Person < Sequel::Model
  plugin :optimistic_locking
p1 = Person[1]
p2 = Person[1]
p1.update(:name=>'Jim') # works
p2.update(:name=>'Bob') # raises Sequel::Plugins::OptimisticLocking::Error

In order for this plugin to work, you need to make sure that the database table has a lock_version column (or other column you name via the lock_column class level accessor) that defaults to 0.

This plugin relies on the instance_filters plugin.
