Problem with Connecting

I have PointBase database running and I started PointBase Admin Console just to check few things.

At the sametime, when I ran my Java program that accesses PointBase, it gave me error that some other application is already using it.

Is locking so dumb that it can't allow more than one access?

Or Am I missing something?

Thanks ,

In all likelyhood a specific table is locked rather than the whole database. Does the console have a query open? Maybe it has a write lock on the table which would prevent other apps from accessing it.
