In order to do this Oracle would have a completely different locking system - built in as option! As soon as your application deals with concurrent access there is no way that Oracle will be able to emulate MS SQL Server (which is the engine behind MSDE). And why should they? Developing on an Oracle database for another product which is much cheaper does not really make sense, does it?

Kind regards
