it has somthing to do with transactions


t1    |t2
      | r(x)  
r(x)  |        
x=x+20|        
      | r(y)  
      | y=x+20
w(x)  |        
      | w(x)  
commit|
      |commit  

this are Bad transactions. t1 shoudn't read x until t2 has unlocked it.

you should learn more about this subject, search the internet, or take a course.

yep, its a transaction problem,
normally caused by two session like

session1 starts a transaction
session2 starts a transaction

session1 modifies table a
session2 modifies table b

session1 wants to modify table b
session2 wants to modify table a
-->deadlock, each session waits for the other

well, there is no common solution,
it depends on your code,
maybe you never end a transaction?
