    V$LOCK and DBA_LOCKS basically provide the same info but in DBA_LOCKS the information is in more understandable format.
    DBA_DML_LOCKS and DBA_DDL_LOCKS provide information about the cuurently held DML and DDL locks respectively.
    You must run catblock.sql in order to create these DBA_ views.
