I think I understand the question. You want to know how to determine  
if the record is locked.

As far as I know there isn't a way. If process A locks the record,  
then process B attempts to lock the record it will block until  
process A releases the record.

If you have statement_timeout set to some value other than -1 then  
process B will timeout after waiting for the statement_timeout.  
Otherwise it will block until process A is finished with the record.
