javax.persistence.lock.timeout is defined as "milliseconds" in the JPA specification. But actually, it is set as "seconds" in SQL for Oracle Database.
When javax.persistence.lock.timeout is 10000 (milliseconds), the following SQL is expected.
SELECT KEY1, COL1 FROM LOCKTEST WHERE (KEY1 = ?) FOR UPDATE WAIT 10
but, "10000" is set instead of "10".

Specify NOWAIT to return control to you immediately if a lock exists.
Specify WAIT to instruct the database to wait integer seconds for the row to
become available and then return control to you.
