This wasn't enough information to draw a conclusion, but instead of 
getting into the details of locking, resultsets, isolation levels and 
other stuff, I would advise you to try out your application code 
involving SELECT FOR UPDATE to confirm that it does what you want.

If you run into problems or have questions, don't hesitate to post your 
questions to the list!

No, sorry, I don't.
But if Stephen is soon ready to contribute his work, I would advice you 
to wait and try out Derby :)
