Wound-wait scheme-deadlock prevention, Database Management System

"Wound-wait" scheme: It is based on a preemptive method. It is based on a simple rule:

                  If Ti requests a database resource that is held by Tj

                   then if Ti has a larger timestamp (Ti is younger) than that of Tj 

                    it is allowed to wait;

     else Tj is wounded up by Ti.

For example, suppose that 3 transactions T1, T2 and T3 were generated in that series, then if T1requests for a data item which is presently held by transaction T2, then T2 is rolled back and data item is allotted to T1 as T1 has a smaller time stamping than that of T2. Though, if T3 requests for a data item which is presently held by transaction T2, then T3 is permitted to wait.

It is vital to see that whenever any transaction is rolled back, it would not make a starvation condition, i.e., no transaction gets rolled back repeatedly and is never permitted to make progress. Also both "wait-die" & "wound-wait" idea avoid starvation. The number of aborts & rollbacks will be higher in wait-die scheme than in the wound-wait idea. But one main problem with both of these ideas is that these ideas may result in unnecessary rollbacks.
