---------------------------------------

> - Accept the patch ISMLocking.patch and discuss a locking implementation/strategy that's
better suited than the current one.

+1

btw, i did a couple of test runs using ConcurrentReadWriteTest against
 a) current trunk
 b) a) with ISMLocking.patch applied (using DefaultISMLocking)
 c) b) with FineGrainedISMLocking.patch applied (using FineGrainedISMLocking)

environment: macbook pro (intel, 2ghz), os-x 10.4.9, jre 1.4.2

results: 

a)
**
   ~2'300 #writes
   ~2'300'000 #reads

b)
**
   ~2'300 #writes
   ~2'300'000 #reads

c)
**
   ~1'700 #writes
   ~2'300'000 #reads

=> c) shows a significant decrease in #writes while #reads doesn't seem
to be affected. i guess that FineGrainedISMLocking still has room for 
improvement ;)

> The SharedItemStateManager (SISM) currently uses a simple read-write lock to ensure data
consistency. Store operations to the PersistenceManager (PM) are effectively serialized.
> We should think about more sophisticated locking to allow concurrent writes on the PM.
> One possible approach:
> If a transaction is currently storing data in a PM a second transaction may check if
the set of changes does not intersect with the first transaction. If that is the case it can
safely store its data in the PM.
> This fine grained locking must also be respected when reading from the SISM. A read request
for an item that is currently being stored must be blocked until the store is finished.
