Re: InstantDB: Please help me

On a table - yes, there can be one writer at a time. This has always been
the case. It is the throughput of readers which should improve.

The new tables locks will eventually allow the remaining transaction modes
to be implemented, but only as time becomes available to do this.

In the meantime, in the serializable mode, InstantDB will automatically
select read locks for selects and write locks for updates and deletes, with
appropriate queuing of connections when they must wait for access. The main
upshot of this is that two connections can do selects simultaneously without
being queued.
