A method is discussed for synchronizing operations on objects when the operations are invoked by transactions. The technique, which is motivated by a desire to make use of possible concurrency in accessing objects, takes into consideration the granularity at which operations affect an object. A dynamic method is presented for determining the compatibility of an invoked operation with respect to
