Subject CS or SS in firebird embedded?
Author Bud Millwood
We're migrating some applications to Firebird embedded and need to support
Win32, Linux-x86 and Solaris sparc.

Our applications are multi-threaded and are expected to at least run correctly
on SMP systems (even if they're not taking full advantage of multiple
processors). We use a database wrapper to abstract the underlying database,
and this wrapper ensures mutual exclusion to the underlying database APIs. We
also ensure that things like pre-compiled statements are allocated

Our question is: Which architecture (CS or SS) best fits our needs? If a
particular architecture is not thread-safe, is it still thread-friendly? (In
other words, does our mutual exclusion wrapper negate the argument for which
architecture to use?)
