Jan Baumgarten wrote a tutorial on how to create a simple application using Delphi + ZeosLib and Firebird 4RC1 on Android devices.
Firebird binaries for Android are around for quite some time as “test” releases, but there is a lack of information about how to use it in Delphi applications. Well, seems that no more 😉
Firebird 3.0.x Android 64bit builds are available.
Finally the Firebird 3 version for Android was made available for download in the official site. Please note that since this version wasn’t widely tested, you must consider it as experimental.
If you find any problems, please report it to the developers mailing list.

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.
Alex Peshkov commented in the fb-devel list that he plans to start working in a port of Firebird 3 for Android right after FB 3 Beta 1 is released. Beta 1 is supposed to be out in this quarter.
