That is not correct, embedded supports multiple connections from the
same process. And with Firebird 3 if you use embedded with in its
firebird.conf setting ServerMode = Classic or SuperClassic, you can
connect to the same database from multiple processes (you just need to
make sure that all processes share the same lock files, although that
should happen by default).
