Yes, you're right. The only thread-safe usage is one thread per database
connection. But you may start N threads in your app and establish N separate
connections to work simultaneously. Since the embedded server has SS
architecture, it allows that. It prevents the database files(s) from being
accessed form multiple processes, but allows multiple attachments from the
single owner process.
