Implement file locking so that two instances of JPasswords cannot overwrite each other's changes to the database. The file locking should allow the database to reside on a network file system (e.g. SMB) and be accessed from multiple computers.

Use case:

An organization wants to have a centralized JPassword database accessed from different computers.

Discussion

  • File locking is implemented with 0-6-0 RC1.
    It works, however, not in some famous environments like Linux, as for the missing feature of the OS there. Also it currently works late, that is you can open and modify the database without notice, but you can't save it when conflicting.
