FileLocker - a small tool to lock files
Did you also sometimes want to test exception cases and the right tools are missing?
I recently wanted to test a locked file exception in Java but from implementing the test it seems there is no easy way in Windows to lock a file for testing (at least I'm not aware of, hints are welcome...) - so I was writing a small command line tool to help me implementing my test cases.
The FileLocker is a Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista/7 32Bit command line tool to lock a file. The lock is a read/write/delete lock. The lock will be released once you kill the program or after a specified time / keypress.
FileLocker [/T LockTime] [/I] [/K] [/Q] file [file...]
|/T LockTime||Time in milliseconds to lock the file|
|/I||Infinite locking until process is killed (default)|
|/K||Lock file until key is pressed|
