ADO.NET provider for Firebird is ready

With the release of Delphi XE5, with support for iOS and Android it also brings InterBase versions of these two O.S-es, people started to question whether we can expect a version of Firebird for mobile platforms. Apparently, it will happen! Paul Beach said he already has a version of FB compiling for iOS, but it still needs testing. Anyway, the release versions for iOS / Android should not happen now, since developers are totally focused on Firebird 3 release.

– Data Editing in the GUI works.
– Data Insertion works.
– Table and Column definition/manipulation is mostly complete, there might still be a few minor-to-major issues, indexes aren’t supported at all.

Paul Beach wrote on his blog :
Based on a document written by Fulvio, a while ago, I finally spent time writing a make file that will automatically create an embedded version of Firebird that will run on MacOSX as a bundle.

ADO.NET provider for Firebird with Entity Framework 6 support preview

Few days ago I wrote a post “Custom conventions in Entity Framework 6 helping Firebird“.Arthur Vickers from Entity Framework team had a good question whether it works also for columns and tables that are generated by Entity Framework (like join tables for M:N, FK columns (if not in model), etc.). And it actually does not. :) For this you have to dig a little bit deeper and use model-based convention.
