Database Administrators Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for database professionals who wish to improve their database skills and learn from others in the community. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have developed a Winforms application which handles database requests, with the database lying on a local network server. Therefor I used LINQ to SQL.

Now I read about how to use LINQ's support for optimistic concurrency here. So I simply have to catch the according ChangeConflictExceptionand handle it. I am actually not familiar with databases so I was wondering.

  1. Is concurrency really completely solved this way.
  2. What other scenarios should I consider in order to keep my consistent?

Like I said I am new to databases so any kind of advice is welcome.

Thanks in advance
