What was the error? Was it "The file is being accessed by another process"?
By default the "shareAccess" used by JCIFS is:
FILE_SHARE_READ | FILE_SHARE_WRITE | FILE_SHARE_DELETE
which indicates that any other process can read, write or delete files
opened by JCIFS.
However, you can changed the shareAccess parameter to SmbFile,
SmbRandomAccessFile or SmbFileOutputStream which could result in the
"The file is being accessed by another process" error if the file is
not closed. Both SmbRandomAccessFile and SmbFileOutputStream provide
If you are not using the shareAccess parameter, then I do not think
the "The file is being accessed by another process" should occur.
What user is JCIFS running under? Perhaps there are different lock
semantics if you are running as Backup Operator? Just guessing here.

Unless your problem is not the issue described above, it has nothing
to do with multi-threading.
