In this week's session we will cover record locking concepts in Valence NAB apps.  We will demonstrate how to set up a file maintenance app that uses back-end RPG toolkit procedures (vvUtility_lockRec and vvUtility_lock, vvUtility_unlock and vvUtility_isLocked) to ensure two users don't attempt to update the same record simultaneously.

In this week's session we'll be covering two interesting topics involving data sources in Nitro App Builder: (1) Pulling data from an outside JSON web service to populate a NAB widget, and (2) using the new vvIn_virtual helper function, introduced in Valence 6, through which a widget can apply filters to WITH clauses inside SQL statements.
