I get 1 failure in odmg tests, 1 failure in otm tests (against hsql).
(my locally OJB1.0.x version with changed locking stuff)

Today or tomorrow I will check in changes in locking handling:
- Restore the "old" odmg locking api and declare it deprecated, because 
only this way we can guarantee 100% compatibility (the old locking stuff 
can be enabled in OJB.properties file, by default the new was used).
- Reworked the new kernel locking stuff (now all operations should be 
atomic, so concurrency problems should no longer happen)
- Add support for apache's commons-transaction locking stuff. I had 
contact with the founder and the next version of commons-tx will include 
some changes needed to make it work with OJB. Till this a dev-jar in 
OJB/lib directory was added.
- Locking docs (needs still some changes to reflect the new stuff)

I found new problems with the odmg dirty/new/deleted object detection 
mechanism. There are problems with proxy objects (and other stuff). I 
don't find a "simple fix" or workaround for these problems, think we 
have to rework this stuff.
There is a test case called ObjectImageTest (bad name I know ;-)). All 
tests are commented out. Run these tests to get an impression of the 
I locally started with an odmg rework, but first I wanted to complete 
the new kernel locking handling.

So the PB-api is ready for release, but the odmg-api has things to fix 
(e.g. still outstanding m:n bug fixing).
