We conducted the several test cases on file locking mechanism of JLan3.7.5 in three scenarios with different applications, including MS Office Word2003, Photoshop, OpenOffice. the interesting thing is  : there is different result with different application on the file locking. three testing scenarios are:
1. Remote Lock/Local Open   
2. Local Lock/Remote Open
3. Remote Lock/Remote Open

here is the results listed below:
Application                         RemoteLock/LocalOpen              LocalLock/RemoteOpen                  RemoteLock/RemoteOpen
MS Office Word2003(MNP)       S(Batch oplock granted)                         S                                            S(Batch oplock granted)
MSOffice Word2003(JLan)      F(No oplock granted)                           S                                      F(No oplock granted)
