shared lock

Lock, that allows other users to set further shared locks but no simultaneous exclusive locks for the locked data. The Open SQL statement SELECT without the addition FOR UPDATE, as well as the corresponding Native SQL statement, do not set (by default) a corresponding database lock for the addressed lines. A shared lock is set as an SAP lock via a correspondingly parameterized call of a lock function module.
