Positive locking is a method to make sure that the client-side product that you are upgrading (or erasing) is the exact same as the product in DynamoDB. Positive concurrency depends upon examining a worth upon conserve to make sure that it has actually not altered. If you utilize this technique, then your database composes are safeguarded from being overwritten by the composes of others– and vice-versa.
By default, the DynamoDB compose operations (
DeleteItem) are genuine: each of these operations will overwrite an existing product that has actually the defined main secret.
DynamoDB additionally supports conditional composes for these operations. A conditional compose will be successful just if the product associates satisfy several predicted conditions. Otherwise, it returns a mistake. Conditional composes are practical in lots of scenarios. For instance, you may desire a
PutItem operation to be successful just if there is not currently a product with the exact same main secret. Or you might avoid an
UpdateItem operation from customizing a product if among its qualities has a specific worth. Conditional composes are practical in cases where numerous users try to customize the exact same product.
In the AWS SDK for PHP, there is a
PessimisticLockingStrategy class for DynamoDB. This locking technique utilizes downhearted locking (comparable to how the native PHP session handler works) to make sure that sessions are not modified while another procedure is reading/writing to it. Cynical locking can be pricey and can increase latencies, particularly in cases where the user can access the session more than as soon as at the exact same time (e.g. ajax, iframes, or numerous web browser tabs).
