It might be useful for people browsing and studying  firebird 2.5.x source code


Posted In:  . By Adriano dos Santos Fernandes

This post is some raw notes and is not very understandable by people who never worked with this code. In fact, the old implementation was so ugly that it was not simple even for me (who is constantly working in this area) to achieve this result. It needed many tries and reverts, but IMNSHO ended very well. Also, this was a large work that took many time, and I’m just writing some records here.

Ubuntu LTS is released and includes the latest firebird stable release 2.5.1

Adriano Fernandes finished a massive code drop and rewrite : Getting rid of dsql_nod

Embarcadero just released the AppWave Store, with plenty of free apps available. And our loved bird is listed in the mainpage, in the “popular apps” listing.



This was written on albringas.com :
I’ve been using Codeigniter as my development platform and framework of choice since last year. Being a ten year PHP developer, Codeigner was a refreshing way of coding web apps with PHP.

The first ones developments I did with Codeigniter were using MySQL, a very used database. But since I’ve also been using Firebird SQL Database from ten or more years ago, I decided to give a try to the Codeigniter-Firebird duo.

I got this in my email box, maybe some of you would be interested:

Dear Carlos,
I came across your name asking developers to send details of large companies who use firebird databases. I am actually an end-user who has the open mind to want a firebird database but cannot find anyone who does this programming. I am based in the UK and am told to ‘steer away’ from firebird as it is not proven, etc. etc.
It really is quite disappointing and seems that there are many others like myself who would like to have an alternative but cannot find a developer. So I am the horse looking for water to drink – but there is no water…not like you describe leading the client to the water but not getting them to drink.
Any suggestions?

PS: It is weird that in the actual days, with so many great case studies published, there are still people who thinks FB is a “toy”.
