If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Nice question.

I wonder how many people here ever used System R. I didn't, for one.

Now, was it Halloween 1976 or Halloween 1977 when it acquired its name (or, more exactly, when the problem got the name "the Halloween Problem")?

Unaware of "Halloween Protection", I thought this to be some kind of a funny question [cooked-up] initially :-)

Got to learn something new, which I was unaware of!

Nice one! I came across this last year whilst studying for an exam.

Shouldn't the options, CREATE, DELETE, INSERT, UPDATE and SELECT be checkboxes though as opposed to radio buttons? After all, it is possible to observe 'Halloween Protection' in DELETE and INSERT plans too Hehe

No, the Halloween problem is exclusively for updates. You can't insert or delete a row multiple times, you can an update and that's the problem. You may see spools in insert or delete plans, but they are not there for halloween protection.

Very nice question! With a little thought, I was certain about the answer. While this was the first time I heard about "halloween protection", the chain of thought I used was Halloween = ghosts & goblins. Ghosts = phantom. We all know about "phantom updates" and hence the answer had to be what it is.

This one has to be the best of the fun series - simply because it teaches something new. Further reading into "Halloween protection" gave me some great insight into what it really is and how can we prevent it.

Happy Halloween, everyone! (And for those who got caught in the storm, I pray that you did not face any major losses).

Thanks & Regards,
