comment Oracle's (+) notation within function

comment oracle AQ for scheduled jobs
You can use DBMS_LOCK, docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/appdev.111/b28419/… to generate unique names for your locks but the naming will not affect the type of processing. Can you post a test case?

comment oracle AQ for scheduled jobs
I don't know what you mean by "Pulls multiple exclusive locks". Are you referring to code that uses Select for update or Lock table commands? I am unaware of how you would name a lock or how that would help, more details please on the problem
