IBM DB2 is the backend database.

Defect/Enhancement Number
The classic deadlock situation arises when two (or more) sessions are waiting to acquire a lock on a shared resource, and none of them can proceed because a second session also has a lock on some other resource that is required by the first session. Imagine a situation, in which Session 1 holds resource A, while trying to access resource B; at the same time Session 2 holds resource B while trying to access resource A. 
Usually RDBMS resolves situations like this automatically by killing one of the processes and rolling back all the changes it may have made.

IBM DB2 runs a background process, called Deadlock Detector, to find and resolve the deadlock situation. The session chosen as a deadlock victim is rolled back, and a special error is generated (SQLCODE-901, SQLSTATE 40001). The read-only process is a prime candidate for the deadlock
victim, and beyond that, DB2 employs "least cost" criteria to select the session to be killed.

The particular use case where this error was encountered is not available.
Consult DBA to verify if there were any DB connectivity / execution failure occurred.
Review application for potential deadlock scenarios, and implement solutions to avoid them.
Use system monitoring tools to collect information about the deadlock situations and either optimize the system.
