Using the Driver in a Multithreaded or a Servlet Environment

The PostgreSQL® JDBC driver is not thread safe. The PostgreSQL server is not threaded. Each connection creates a new process on the server as such any concurrent requests to the process would have to be serialized. The driver makes no guarantees that methods on connections are synchronized. It will be up to the caller to synchronize calls to the driver.

A notable exception is org/postgresql/jdbc/ which is threadsafe.
