Subject MVCC and update locking
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2011 17:49:25 GMT
Hello,

CouchDB claims to be lockless, thanks to its use of MVCC. Both CouchDB and
MarkLogic claim to use MVCC.

However, http://www.odbms.org/download/inside-marklogic-server.pdf states
that MarkLogic does read and write locking for updates.

Does CouchDB also do the same ? If not, how does it do updates differently ?

Regards,
Danny
