Soft Locking needs programmatic method to check for locks/unlock

When Document Locking is not enabled, Soft Lock feature is enabled as default.
It prevents two users from editing the same document on the same server at the same time.

The customer request us to add programmatic functionality for soft locking. Two function are needed:

1) There needs to be a LotusScript (and also formula) mechanism for determining if a document is already soft locked when it is opened by a user. The same functionality exists when the document is "hard locked".


2) There needs to be a LotusScript (and also formula and perhaps Java) mechanism for forcing a document to be unlocked. This same functionality is available when document locking is enabled on the database.

    1. Agree.

    2. Disagree, because it will potentially lead to conflicts.
