JCo and multi-threaded BAPI applications

I want to write a multi-threaded BAPI application, and I am concerned about overhead. If I have a few threads that call different RFCs, can they share the same JCO.Client object or do they all need their own connection to R/3? What if I want to call the same RFC in R/3 using many threads? Is this possible, and does each thread need it's own connection? What about the repository object?

The JCo Repository is thread-safe, so you can share one. And yes, you need one connection for each concurrent access to SAP. Sharing connections between threads is not allowed.
