Multiple concurrency levels
Derby supports SERIALIZABLE
(RR), REPEATABLE (RS), READ COMMITTED (CS), and READ UNCOMMITTED (UR) isolation
- CS (the default isolation level) provides the best balance between concurrency
and consistency in multiple-client environments.
- RS provides less consistency than RR but allows more concurrency.
- RR provides greatest consistency.
- UR provides maximum concurrency, if uncommitted values are allowed in
the query. It is typically used if approximate results are acceptable.
