It seems i have not show the question very clear. While my app codes is accessing the db,anohter server is updating the db. so What i want is not accessing the db until the db is updated.I think there must be a ruby or rails method to do it, but can not find it. Thanks!

When Rails is first called and the code starts to execute, it is in instance #1 It then runs through the code and calls a method that invokes the remote service. (now you want it to wait) When the remote service calls back, because instance #1 is busy, it will invoke the method on instance #2 which has no knowledge of instance #1 or it's waiting. Two quick ways I can think of to solve this. 1. Don't let the remote service update the database, get it to return the data and you update the database within the same method call so you're always in control 2. If that's not possible, return from the method and use AJAX or a page refresh to check if the remote service has done what it should and display the results after that.
