Goal

In Pro*C, how do you skip a transaction if this transaction occurs against a locked ROW in a TABLE.

If there are two different transactions which are trying to update the same row in a table, then one transaction will by default wait for the other to complete and then process the update.  This may lead to updates being buried and will affect the performance of the program.
