Christian Mayer wrote on Android Jaybird discussion forum
i have updated the example in the download area.
Basically you have to go to File -> Project Structure and klick the green add sign in the upper left.
Then choose “Import .JAR/.AAR Package” and select the aar file.
After that in the group area select app and go to Dependencies.
Here klick the green add sign in the upper right a choose “Module Dependencies”
If that doesn’t work please use the provided example.
Ps: It’s compiled as Android-Library : AAR .
You can use it like this:
In a private email exchange to Alex Peshkov, he allowed be to publish his “cloud” link, containing a test version of Firebird 3 for Android.
Archives with tools for accessing databases in embedded mode are available at https://cloud.mail.ru/public/0b09cf605ed8/FbAndr
Note that Embedded can be used also as a client to access remote Firebird servers.
Embedded version should be _embedded_ into target application. It’s not installed separately. It can be accessed by the well known ISC API, and there is also the new OO API.
Alex need people to try it out and report/comment about problems, etc.
If you expect to see an official Android Firebird build in the future, you must start helping testing and sending feedback.
