An ODBC driver for Firebird on MacOSX

Via Paul Beach Blog

I was recently contacted by a Firebird user on MacOSX who was trying to get the Firebird ODBC driver to build on MacOSX. I thought I would try and step in to help.

For those of you who follow the CVS checkins for OdbcJdbc you might have noticed the addition of a number of a new directory in the Builds directory called Gcc.darwin containing a makefile, a readme and a .sh file to create a lipo’ed dylib. The driver sucessfully builds and passes some simple tests. Feel free to contact me for a copy of the dylib to test further.

#ODBC Driver Project Lives Again with new Version 2.0 Release Candidate 2.

The Open Source Firebird (IBPhoenix) ODBC driver has been updated to Version 2.0 Release Candidate 2.

Alexander Potapchenko wrote on firebird-odbc list:

I resume development of the ODBC driver. The primary goal to finish ODBC
driver 2.0 (with full x64 support and fixed “blocker” level problems) now.
If you are having any problems with the current driver but have not
reported them because the sub-project wasn’t active, then to add them to
the Bag tracker now.

ps: if you don’t know what is the bag tracker 🙂 it’s Firebird Project’s bug tracker.
