Is it possible to lock files automatically on edit?  XML

We are a very small development team and would like to have a common working directory where different users will work on the files. The files are mostly binary files (Oracle Forms & Reports files) and developers would only require to work on 1 file at a time.

It is now possible to lock a file and then edit the file. When another user tries to lock the file it gives an error. But it is possible for the other user to go ahead and make changes to the file.

We would like to have the locking done automatically on edit/open. The second user should not be able to edit/open the file as it would fail on the lock held by the first user.

Is this possible through wrappers or action.verb commands to provide jcvs with this functionality?

I do not believe that you can accomplish this with the existing tools.

Is it possible to add this functionality to jCVS as an enhancement request?

I am sure this will be useful to many users working in small development teams and working on binary files.

I have tagged this thread as a "request for enhancement".

I am not sure what would be involved in implementing this feature, but I will look into it.
