Sounds slightly counterintuitive. What have you included in your architecture that requires synchronization?

well , i have an ID's generation table on my DB , that is resposible of generating the ID's of my entities according to some Custom rules , this process requires read and write to that table , so synchronization should be garanteed , Thanks

Database transactions and locks should do this for you. They're generally great at concurrency if you get the options right.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Let the database handle that if possible.
