How can I restrict the records only Edit/View by the owner?

I wanted to edit the record and viewable by the record owner and admin and also based on recordtypes.

Also I want to share a particular record type to everyone from contact and restrict another record types to others.


Can I acheive this without creating sharing rules?

If so how?


Please let me know steps.

you can use sharing rules for sure, mostly the point and click sharing i.e. force.com or user managed should work. In case your requirements are complex, you can use Apex managed sharing.


Here is an awesome guide on Sharing  : http://wiki.developerforce.com/page/Using_Apex_Managed_Sharing_to_Create_Custom_Record_Sharing_Logic
