Multiple Users And Deadlocks - Inserts (2)

In the section before, we saw that we can simulatenously insert records into the same table. But is that really always the case?

The inserts from the last section were a bit of a best case scenario. More specifically, our items table does not have any constraints on its columns. (Like a unique constraint or similar). And as soon as we add a unique constraint, you cannot insert two records into the same table anymore and your connections will (dead)lock.

Check out the code below and the only thing that changed is the unique constraint on the name column.
