Firebird and FireBase (Brazilian Firebird dedicated portal) is mentioned in the Database section of the 2006 edition of “Anuário InfoCorporate“. Some months ago, a journalist from InfoCorporate called me by phone and made a small interview about Open Source databases and Firebird to be used in the publication.
The publication is a major source of indexed information to make the work of finding the best services/consulting providers of a specific area easier.
An excerpt of the article be be viewed below (portuguese only):
dnfBB is a n-Tier, fast and lightweight .Net-powered discussion board written in C#. With native support for multiple forums within the same database structure. Initially designed to work with Firebird and MySQL, support for other databases is planned.
We are proud to present our new tool and service to undelete records in InterBase and Firebird databases.
IBUndelete is the only tool which can undelete occasionally deleted records in InterBase or Firebird databases. It uses IBSurgeon core engine for direct work with data inside database.
For sophisticated undelete we offer our service for very affordable price (as usual).
Please download IBUndelete trial version with checking abilities from this location: www.ibsurgeon.com/download/ibundeletetrial.exe.
Site is www.ibundelete.com
If you don’t find records available for undelete but believe they should be there please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the beginning of January I posted a Request for Ideas: Firebird in .NET Tutorial. First of all, thanks to all who contributed their ideas.
I’m currently working hard on the tutorial. The original idea was to write just a quick introduction but it seems there is a lot to tell… The weakest point of Firebird seems to be the lack of freely available documentation – so I decided to invest a little bit more time in the tutorial.
Sequoia is a transparent middleware solution for clustering, load balancing and failover services for any database. The database is distributed and replicated among several nodes and Sequonia balances the queries among nodes. It is also known to handle node failures and support for checkpointing and hot recovery. It was formerly known as the clustered JDBC project and provides high availability and performance scalability for databases.

In my last blog entry reguarding the rumored SunDB I immediately discounted the Firebird Database as a contender. In the comments posted to that entry it was suggested that Firebird shouldn’t be so quickly discarded and may even be a “diamond in the rough”. Well, if I’m wrong I’m willing to explore it and admit that I’m wrong if thats the case, afterall, what if Firebird really that great? I certainly don’t want to miss out on a good thing. So thanks to Gentoo I quickly emerged Firebird 1.5.2 and started playing.
