Release of ADO.NET Provider for OLE DB – v1.11

Hello everyone!

We are released new update of our ADO.NET provider for OLE DB, which allows the work with Firebird and InterBase from .NET application through IBProvider.

https://www.ibprovider.com/eng/news/n_190304.html

Description of change

When connecting to the Firebird, InterBase and Yaffil databases, the «ISC:DatabaseDialect» and «ISC:ConnectionDialect» columns are available in the «DataSourceInformation» metadata schema.

This information is taken from the information properties of IBProvider: «IB Database Dialect» and «IB Connection Dialect», respectively.

The full list of columns in the DataSourceInformation schema is defined in the static class OleDbMetaDataCollectionColumnNames.DataSourceInformation.

You may get our ADO.NET provider from IBProvider site and from NUGET site.

Regards, IBProvider Team.

Release of IBProvider v5

We are proud to introduce the fifth version of our basic product for working with Firebird and InterBase.

IBProvider v5 inherits all the best from IBProvider v3 and dramatically improves the quality of implementation of the OLE DB components.

For the last few years, the main development line of IBProvider was fixing problems that prevented its stable operation. First of all, we had to fix problems not related to the provider itself — we rewrote the client for Firebird and the standard pool of OLE DB connections. It took a lot of time and resourses, but it was worth it.

Now the time has come to get to IBProvider itself.

Instead of local fixes, within the support of the third version we redesigned the inner infrastructure of the OLE DB components of IBProvider taking into account the entire experience gained over the last years. In part, the ideas were taken from our ADO.NET provider.

The main qualities of IBProvider v5 are reliability and fail safety…

With Best Regards, IBProvider Team.

Introducing Firebird Butler

We are pleased to announce a significant extension of the Firebird project to a whole new area. Starting in February 2019, alongside the core (Firebird database system) and database drivers, a completely new division called Firebird Butler is integrated into the project. The purpose of the Butler division is to develop and provide solutions to various Firebird-related challenges faced by Firebird administrators and application developers that, for practical reasons, are not addressed by the core Firebird distribution.

The primary aim of Firebird Butler is to create a development platform and develop a set of basic solutions to manage Firebird installations of any size, structure and complexity.  The emphasis is on large corporate installations but the scope and ambitions of the Firebird Butler project are much broader:  we would like to initiate development of an entire open source ecosystem of projects and other products, including commercial ones, in various languages. Projects could encompass not just the planned new services, but alternative implementations of the standard services as well. Moreover, the Firebird Butler Development Platform should become a solid foundation for development of any applications that use Service Oriented Architecture and messaging.

For a closer look at the project goals and strategies, please read the “Introduction to Firebird Butler”.

Although the project is only in the early stages of development, we encourage you to take a close look at what we have and where we are going. The project is completely open, and we will welcome anyone, individuals or organizations, who is interested in the objectives and strategy of the project and wishes to participate in its development, in a common or entirely private capacity, or to become its sponsor.

Firebird Butler also presents a great opportunity for developers with experience in Python, Java, FreePascal, Delphi, C# or other languages to get involved in Firebird project activities.
The Firebird Project Team
