How Relevant to firebird project is the Homeland Security Grant?

Article shows how Coverity worked with linux kernel developers in the past sending them patches

“For now, Coverity plans to publish the defect reports on a semi-private Web site so that any developer associated with a particular open source project can examine the list, determine if something actually needs to be fixed, and then create a fix and submit it to the project lead. This is currently the model used by Coverity for the defects they published for the Linux kernel.”

Firebird very well ranked inside Brazilian Java community

Specially in Brazil, it is known that Firebird is very strong inside the Delphi community. But a survey from Portal Java, a Java devoted Brazilian portal, shows that FB is very well positioned among the +2,380 Java users who had voted. Check the full ranking here.

PS: Unfortunatelly the survey option shows “InterBase/Firebird”. I hope survey/poll publishers start to understand that they are diferent products, and separate them in the next surveys.

BDNTV recent aditions

There are two new InterBase presentations from the lastest Borland conference available for online watching:

bdntv.borland.com/devcon05/3166/3166.html
bdntv.borland.com/devcon05/3144/3144.html

First one is about new security features of InterBase.
Second one is about the usage of ADO.Net in Delphi 2006 with InterBase. Of course, almost all the info there can be applied to Firebird, since we have a Firebird .Net Provider!

Thanks Alexey for the links.

Interesting article

Interesting article published on ComputerWorld: High-Speed Databases Rev Corporate Apps.

“…Some of the new products simply move the action from disk to memory, where access is a million times faster. Others are more radical departures from tradition, such as “streaming” technologies that store queries and pass data through them rather than run queries against stored data. Still others have found clever ways to sidestep much of the overhead — such as table locking — associated with the traditional RDBMS…”
