Locking, Shared XML, Repetition, Edit actions
We propose a list data sharing model, which utilizes semantics expressed in DTD for concurrency control of shared XML trees. In this model, tree updating actions such as inserting and/or deleting subtrees are allowed only for repetitive parts. The proposed model guarantees that the resulting XML tree is valid even when tree update actions are applied concurrently. In addition, we propose a new multi-granularity locking mechanism called list locking protocol. This protocol locks on the (index) list of repetitive children nodes and thus allows updates to the descendents when the node child¡¯s subtree is being deleted or inserted. This protocol is expected to be more accessible and to produce fewer locking objects on XML data compared to other methods. Moreover, the prototype system shows that list locking is well suited to user interface of shared XML clients by enabling/disabling corresponding edit operation controls.
