In the new article we describe a new feature of IBProvider – supporting ADOX.Library.
There are 2 examples on Visual C# and VBScript which describe how to create Firebird database using ADODB Extensions.
See details here:
Create Firebird or Interbase database (ADOX, Visual C# .NET, VBScript)
Of course this may make access a little slow, but not the object of this article. It also assumes that the reader knows the ASP technology.

Seems there are a lot of bugs and patches accumulating in the DBD::InterBase driver and the community already forked the code on github with many patches and fixes applied to the main code
I will create a renamed driver with the name DBD::Firebird in cpan from the above fork and i will apply all the patches and fix the bugs that were not fixed
You can do this (in theory) using Firebird .Net provider and Mono via MonoDroid (private preview and seems that you need to pay for it later ) or with the opensource project androidmono
After MonoTouch on Iphone / Ipad now you can connect to a firebird database using .net provider and mono
I saw it on this tweet and Jiri answered that he will try it if he gets a MonoDroid sdk
This is the tweet of the day
Today a giant company in the printing business bought Sinática Monitor. Is #Firebird making it into the enterprise? Cheers…
ps:Firebird is ready and it’s used for Enterprise systems (replacing mysql , mssql , or oracle)
I quote the article :
In the last post, we have already figure out how to connect to the firebird database in Linux/UNIX environment. In this post, I will use application built in Qt framework to connect the firebird database and do simply task.
To allowing Qt applications connect to the firebird database, we need some tools, here I introduce the IBPP project.
Here is the article on howto Connect and Install Firebird 2.5 in Ubuntu from tar.gz and also howto connect to it with Flamerobin GUI
The introductory document “Get to know Firebird in 2 minutes” was translated to Arabic by Khaled Shagrouni! You can find it here.
