I dont. I have contemplated using DML Caching (link to tech info in
an earlier posting on this thread), however so far I have found it
unnecessary. The biggest of my applications is in the happy position
of conflicting updates being very rare - about thirty users accessing
the database, but these are spread across 6 different branches and so
is the work. So far I have not had any complaints. The only place
where conflicts are likely is in administrative function, and those
functions allow only a few users.
