Do you want to enable execution of SQL scripts in your programs and spend less time for exhausting coding?
Do you want to create a table, a generator and a trigger, to add data to the table, to make data selection and then to delete all this in one command? For example:
set autoddl on;
create generator GEN_ID_TEST_TABLE;
create table TEST_TABLE (ID INTEGER NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,TEXT BLOB SUB_TYPE TEXT);
create trigger BI_TEST_TABLE for TEST_TABLE
if(NEW.ID IS NULL) then NEW.ID=GEN_ID(GEN_ID_TEST_TABLE,1);
insert into TEST_TABLE (text) values('record 1');
insert into TEST_TABLE (text) values('record 2');
set term !!;
select * from TEST_TABLE!!
set terminator ;!!
set autoddl off;
drop table TEST_TABLE;
drop generator GEN_ID_TEST_TABLE;
Now it is possible with new IBProvider! IBProvider v.184.108.40.20617 allows to run a command with several SQL queries (SQL scripts).

Have you ever lost microseconds when working with the type TIME?
Definitely, if you have ever tried to use them. In the previous versions of IBProvider, time was stored in OLE DB structure of DBTYPE_DBTIME type that does not support fractions of a second.
In the new IBProvider version, time data types have been improved. The new properties dbtime_rules and dbtimestamp_rules allow to set time storage not only in DBTIME/DBTIMESTAMP but also in WSTR and in the new type of MS SQL 2008 – DBTIME2 without losing milliseconds.

We are glad to announce the release of new IBProvider Professional v3 codename “Shaitan” . The volume of processed data is now restricted only by the free space on your hard disk containing provider’s swap file. In the earlier versions of IBProvider, when the system cache had worked out available physical memory, the performance was dropping substantially.
IBProvider Professional codename “Shaitan” is able not only to process tens of gigabytes of data, but does it substantially faster than its predecessors do.
This is possible due to the usage of more efficient buffering and cashing algorithms and multithread data handling.
Furthermore, support of GB18030 charset was added.
