Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone knew if access to shapefile geometries is threadsafe in 0.9.

I have a webpage that accesses geometry data from a shapefile and returns it via html.
Should I be worried about any concurrency issues in terms of requests to the same shapefile at the same time?

Hi Matt, while the 0.9 shapefile provider is  not 'threadsafe' you should not have any problems, more than one shapefile provider can read the same shapefile at the same time and will not interfere with each other. hth jd
