I'm currently developing a webserver using Sybase ASE 11.0.3, Sybperl,
Modperl and Apache on Linux 2.0.36.
The application is a high throughput OLTP server and performance is
critical - it's a kind of seach engine type app. I am therefore intending to
use ModPerl to maintain a persistent database connection via Sybperl to
However, I have the following question: Can a persistent database connection
support multiple users? If multiple users share the same database
connection simultaneously then surely there will be a conflict?
If this is the case then is there a way round this problem or do I have to
go back to the old way of initialising new database connections per user
Any help would be appreciated.
