When working with Firebird in .NET I’ve been collecting Firebird errors and exceptions and their causes. It saved me a lot of time because the exceptions usually came again… I’m sharing my list here – if you have something to add don’t hesitate and add a comment.
All patches applied to the debian package of firebird are available on
. The ones you’re looking for are gcc4.dpatch and gcc4+amd64.dpatch
Please note that these patches change some .epp files that also have
corresponding .cpp files supplied by the source tarball. The build
process for debian removes all generated files before patching,
including .cpp files that are generated from .epp’s. Under normal
circumstances your .cpp files should be re-generated automatically
from patched .epp’s, but I’d better raise the flag.
 See clean target in debian/rules for details

After the “Creating Firebird database programatically (Delphi)” post I’ve created the “Creating Firebird database programatically (C#/.NET)” example.

Are you ready for TPC-C based test results? Are you looking forward to know who is the winner?!
Be prepared – 4th issue of IBDeveloper is coming soon!
Just take a look on this image – it’s one of our test results:

svn has a lot of benefits over cvs. For me, the biggest benefit is the increased ability to work on a plane I can do an svn delete or an svn diff while disconnected. When I land, I can simply do an svn update and an svn commit.
It looks like bzr intends to take this to the next level, I can work on multiple changes, create branches, and query the version history while offline.
[ED: it might be useful when sf.net cvs/subversion servers are down, I think of it as an p2p scm]
Today my colleague asked me the question, “How to create FB database programatically from Delphi?”. Well, the solution is very easy, just use the following code:
The SQL 2003 Standard introduced a new schema called INFORMATION_SCHEMA. Not every DBMS has implemented this feature yet, and Firebird isn’t an exception. Here’s an overview on how to extract META informations from the System Tables with simple queries.
