Application locks aren't a well known area of locking in SQL Server, but they can be very useful for special
scenarios. They work in a analogous way to the lock() construct in .Net and
are basicaly user defined mutexes in SQL Server.

Very good article. Very useful. I found that sp_getapplock will NOT work within a dotnet System.Transaction - even if it is also within a SQL transaction. It took me a while to figure that out.

define won't work. the sp_getapplock lock does NOT lock data. only blocks of code.
