7. What are the locks available in Visual
Locking is the process by which a DBMS
restricts access to a row in a multi-user environment

4 types of locks. They are
1. Batch Optimistic
2. Optimistic
3. Pessimistic
4. ReadOnly

Operations in a relational database act on a complete
set of rows. The set of rows returned by a SELECT
statement consists of all the rows that satisfy the
conditions in the WHERE clause of the statement. This
complete set of rows returned by the statement is
known as the result set. Applications, especially
those that are interactive and online, cannot always
work effectively with the entire result set as a unit.
These applications need a mechanism to work with one
row or a small block of rows at a time. Cursors are an
extension to result sets that provide that mechanism.

Cursor or lock type Advantages Disadvantages
AdOpenForwardOnly (Default) · Low resource
requirements · Cannot scroll backward · No data
AdOpenStatic · Scrollable (Wont detect changes made at
the same time by another application) · No data
AdOpenKeyset · Some data concurrency · Scrollable ·
Higher resource requirements · Not available in
disconnected scenario
AdOpenDynamic · High data concurrency · Scrollable ·
Highest resource requirements · Not available in
disconnected scenario
AdLockReadOnly · Low resource requirements · Highly
scalable · Data not updatable through cursor
AdLockBatchOptimistic · Batch updates · Allows
disconnected scenarios · Other users able to access
data · Data can be changed by multiple users at once
AdLockPessimistic · Data cannot be changed by other
users while locked · Prevents other users from
accessing data while locked
AdLockOptimistic · Other users able to access data ·
Data can be changed by multiple users at once

8.What is the diff between RDO and ADO?

RDO is Hierarchy model where as ADO is Object
model. ADO can access data from both flat files as

12.What is ASP (Active Server Pages)?

ASP is a server side-scripting environment for
building dynamic and interactive web pages. Since the
scripts run on the server side, the web server does
all the processing.

13. What are the advantages of using ASP?

· Minimizes network traffic by limiting the need for
the browser and server to talk to each other
· Makes for quicker loading time since HTML pages are
only downloaded
· Allows to run programs in languages that are not
supported by the browser
· Can provide the client with data that does not
reside on the client’s machine
· Provides improved security measures since the script
cannot be viewed by
the browser

14. What is HTML(Hypertext Markup Language)?

It’s a method by which web pages can be built and
generally used for formatting and linking text.

15. What are the types of HTML?

· Static HTML – Browser uses HTTP to request HTML file
from the Web Server
· Dynamic HTML – Browser uses HTTP to request an
executable application rather than a Static HTML file

16. What is the difference between ASP and HTML? Or
Why ASP is better than HTML?

· ASP executes code on the server side whereas the
browser interprets HTML.
· ASP can use any scripting languages
· Gets feedback from the user and return information
to the user
· Create pages that will be customized to display only
things that will be of interest to a particular user
· Can edit contents of a web page by updating a text
file or a database rather than the HTML code itself

17. What is a Web Server?

It’s a Computer that provides Web services on the
Internet or on a local Intranet. It is designed to
locate, address and send out simple HTML pages to all
other users who access these pages.

18. What is IIS?

IIS is a Web Server that provides Web services, not
only for web pages but also for ftp sites and video
and audio services. It integrates with the database
facilities of SQL Server.
19. What do you need to run ASP?

A browser and a Web server.

20. What is a Scripting Language?
