Greetings,

I'm currently doing the Bodgitt and Scarper project and I'm wondering if it is allowed to run more than 1 client using standalone mode. If that's the case, I will run into problems if 2 clients update same contractor since i am caching data and not everytime reading from the db file.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ken Fook

The URLyBird spec specifically says to "assume at most one client is accessing the database". Or something to that effect, check your spec as I'm sure it says the same.
NB Client here means a database client, in other words you should only worry about concurrent requests from your server.
If your server is running then no stand alone clients can run, no other server either, but you don't have to prevent this.

Hi Ken,

I am doing B&S 2.3.1.

File access out of the JVM is not your concern. If another JVM is accessing the file then locking or how up-to-date data is should not be issue.
