Mobile computing characteristics demand data management systems to support independent operation. However, the execution of updates in a mobile client usually need to be considered tentative because uncoordinated updates that conflict need to be reconciled. In this paper we present a mechanism to independently guarantee that updates can be executed in the server without conflicts. To this end, clients obtain leased reservations upon the database state.
