Jaybird 2.2.4 released

The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 2.2.4.

This release contains the following fixes:

  • Fixed: Exceptions during statement preparation leave connection and transaction open after explicit close (JDBC-311)
  • Fixed batch update (or insert) with blob set through setBinaryStream() sets empty blob for all but the first batch entry (JDBC-312)
  • Fixed incomplete checks of database, transaction, statement and blob handle validity before continuing with actions. These incomplete checks could lead to unexpected exceptions (for example a NullPointerException in iscDatabaseInfo) (JDBC-313)
  • Fixed error when setting connection charset equal to "file.encoding" java property (JDBC-314)
  • Fixed connection character set not correctly set when specifying the Java connection characterset (charSet or localEncoding property)  (JDBC-315)
  • Fixed incorrect lengths and/or radix reported by getTypeInfo and getColumns metadata (JDBC-317, JDBC-318)
  • Initial Java 8 / JDBC 4.2 support (JDBC-319)
  • Firebird 3 BOOLEAN type support, see Support for Firebird 3 BOOLEAN type in the release notes for more details (JDBC-321)
  • Added fallback of loading GDSFactoryPlugin implementations to prevent NullPointerException in Hibernate reverse engineering wizard in NetBeans (JDBC-325)
  • Fixed: Jaybird should specify dialect 3 in dpb when no explicit dialect was set (JDBC-327)
  • Fixed: several DatabaseMetaData methods defined by JDBC to only accept the actual table name also accepted a LIKE-pattern or empty string or null. This was changed to conform to JDBC. This change can break applications that relied on the incorrect behavior (JDBC-331)
    Affected methods are: getPrimaryKeys, getBestRowIdentifier, getImportedKeys, getExportedKeys and getCrossReference. As part of this change getIndexInfo now handles names in the wrong case slightly different.
    Jaybird 3.0 will further modify and restrict the pattern matching and case sensitivity of metadata methods. See Future changes to Jaybird in the release notes for more details.

Downloads available from JDBC driver section on the Firebird website.

Using Jaybird with Firebird 3.0 alpha 1

Mark Rotteveel wrote on Firebird Java list :

I have started a page on the Jaybird wiki on using Jaybird with Firebird

3.0 alpha 1:

http://jaybirdwiki.firebirdsql.org/jaybird/doku.php?id=tip:firebird30a1

It lists know problems, compatibility issues and workarounds between
Jaybird 2.2.x and earlier and Firebird 3 (alpha 1).

It is a work in progress, but I hope to have all the basics listed by
Sunday. If you miss something, or something doesn’t work for you with
Firebird 3, let me know.

Mark

Jaybird 2.2 beta hopefully will be released this weekend with jdbc 3.0 and open/libre office support

News via Mark Rotteveel on twitter

Finishing touches to Jaybird 2.2 beta releasenotes, hopefully I will be able to finally release it this weekend

ps:
Jaybird 2.2 is the next Firebird jdbc driver release with many fixes which will include improved support of the JTA specification (XADataSource and XAResource interfaces). Additionally it already has improved support for OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice Base component, which deviates in some places from the JDBC 3.0 specification.
