Happy to announce a new release and general availability of Bipost Sync, a tool designed for synchronizing Firebird SQL (Windows) to AWS cloud.
Built for developers in mind.
Bipost Sync is ideal to extend your on-premises Firebird DB’s to the cloud, and build web applications, web services and API’s on top of AWS cloud platform.
It is also a great way to consolidate information from separate databases and locations, e.g. manufacturing companies may want to read sales and inventory information from 2nd or 3rd tier small retailers.
(*) Synchronize specific data sets from Firebird SQL on Windows to AWS Aurora-MySQL.
(*) Two-way synchronization available, from AWS Aurora-MySQL back to your Firebird SQL.
(*) No need to create/alter schemas, this is done by our sync tool.
(*) Prepare your data before you load with stored procedures you define.
(*) Transform your data after load is done, also with stored procedures you define.

MWA Software is pleased to announce that release 2.2.0 of IBX for Lazarus is now available for download from mwasoftware.co.uk/ibx. This is an important update to IBX and all users are recommended to upgrade to the new release. Please read the changelog before upgrade.
The main intent behind the release is to add support for the remaining Firebird 3 features (and some from earlier Firebird releases) that were not supported in release 2.1. This includes:
- Support for SQL Statements INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE…RETURNING. The first two cases are now able to update the current row for all TIBCustomDataset descendents including TIBTable, using data returned following a row insert or update.
- INSERT…RETURNING is used to provide support for Firebird “Identity” columns. For example, when used to provide auto-increment primary keys.
- Firebird “Packages” are now supported by TIBStoredProc and by the SQL Component Editors.
- Additional Firebird 3 properties are now supported by TIBDatabaseInfo and by the Services API components (e.g. TIBConfigService).
- Alternative Security Databases are now supported by the Services API Components.
- TIBExtract now supports DDL Grants and triggers on database objects.
- A new IBServices component to support online validation of a database (TIBOnlineValidationService).
- A major new example application (DBAdmin) is now included. This illustrates the use of IBX for Day-to-Day Database Administration tasks including User Management, Backup/Restore and Database Validation and Repair. It is also intended to provided a useable application that users may use directly or incorporate into their own toolsets. It also demonstrates User Management using Firebird 3 virtual tables and SQL statements. Note: this application also requires the standard Lazarus package MemDSLaz.
This release also incorporates recent bug fixes and includes a 33 page guide to the use of IBX for Firebird DBA activities.
IBX for Lazarus may be downloaded from: www.mwasoftware.co.uk/ibx
