The embedded driver uses a lock file to detect two copies of the driver
accidentally accessing the same database, so perhaps even though you think
you are using the client driver for your second connection, your code is
falling through into the embedded driver in both cases, and so both programs
are trying to access the database directly, which is not allowed.

The "blahblah" part of the client connection URL can also be either a relative
or absolute database path name, just as is true with the EmbeddedDriver. So you
should be able to have your client URL be something like:


I can't remember for sure whether you need two slashes after the 1527 when you do this.
