The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 2.2.1.
This release contains the following fixes:
UnsatisfiedLinkError in libjaybird22(_x64).so undefined symbol: _ZTVN10__cxxabiv117__class_type_infoE on Linux (JDBC-259)
- Added connection property
columnLabelForName for backwards compatible behavior of
ResultSetMetaData#getColumnName(int) and compatibility with bug in
Set property to
true for backwards compatible behavior (
getColumnName() returns the column label); don’t set the property or set it to
false for JDBC-compliant behavior (recommended).
setString(column, null) on “
? IS (NOT) NULL” condition does not set parameter to
charSet connection property now accepts all aliases of the supported Java character sets (eg instead of only
windows-1252 is also accepted) (JDBC-267)
- Fixed: values of
charSet property are case-sensitive (JDBC-268)
- Fixed: setting a parameter as
NULL with the native protocol does not work when Firebird describes the parameter as not nullable (JDBC-271)
The release is also available on maven:
The artifactId depends on your target Java version:

The make file detailed below was written for Firebird 2.5.x
