<p>The authors examine a priority driven two-phase lock protocol called the read/write priority ceiling protocol. It is shown that this protocol leads to freedom from mutual deadlock. In addition, a high-priority transactions can be blocked by lower priority transactions for at most the duration of a single embedded transaction. These properties can be used by schedulability analysis to guarantee that a set of periodic transactions using this protocol can always meet its deadlines. Finally, the performance of this protocol is examined for randomly arriving transactions using simulation studies.</p>
