    Is a deadlock exception always due to a deadlock?

      Ok, the subject may sound like a stupid question, but I'd really like to know. I've been mucking around with my application, and whenever I have more then one user accessing it simultaniously, I end up getting deadlock exceptions. As far as I can see however, what is really going on is that one of the users has locked the bean/row/table, and the other bean is then attempting to access the locked resource. I would not really define this as deadlock.

      So to all the gurus out there, when I get a deadlock exception, could it actually be due to a resource simply being locked rather then a real deadlock occuring?
      Many thanks
