Projects / JayBird


JayBird is JCA/JDBC driver suite for connecting to Firebird database servers. It was based on Borland's InterClient JDBC driver and uses the new JCA standard, which specifies an architecture in which an application server can cooperate with a driver so that the application server manages transactions, security, and resource pooling, and the driver supplies only the connection functionality. It also supports JDBC.

    Release Notes: Due to critical fixes everybody using versions between 2.1.2 and 2.1.5 is advised to upgrade to this new version to avoid data corruption when doing updates and the table has a composite primary key. Cases where table's primary key has only one column or there is no primary key at all are not affected.

      Release Notes: This release fixes only one bug, related to the situation in which developers use the DatabaseMetaData class with identifiers/patterns with a case different to the one in the database. The solution is to try to execute the query with the original case, and when nothing is found, another query with uppercased identifiers is executed. In the worst case, this will cause two queries to be executed against the database, which can lead to performance loss.
