Finishing touches to Jaybird 2.2 beta releasenotes, hopefully I will be able to finally release it this weekend
Jaybird 2.2 is the next Firebird jdbc driver release with many fixes which will include improved support of the JTA specification (XADataSource and XAResource interfaces). Additionally it already has improved support for OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice Base component, which deviates in some places from the JDBC 3.0 specification.
SQL Workbench/J is a free, DBMS-independent, cross-platform SQL query tool. It is written in Java and thus it should run on any operating system that provides a Java Runtime Environment.
It can be used with Firebird jdbc driver
Web-based Squirrel SQL client. It allows you to view database structure, import/export and manage your databases, including create database, table, store procedure, view,trigger and user. it supports Firebird
Today Habarisoft announced the start of the FireAlarm project, a monitoring solution for the Open Source RDBMS Firebird.
FireAlarm checks Firebird servers for high load situations, caused by software failures or denial of service (DOS) attacks, and helps developers or database administrators to detect performance bottlenecks. It is written in the Java programming language and released as open source.
Here are the notes on connecting JIRA to Firebird. It supplements the official Firebird installation documentation.
Adriano (Firebird Core Team member) published a document (sorry, only in Portuguese) describing how he developed the integration between Java and Firebird, allowing people to write procedures and triggers in Java.
dcm4che is a collection of open source applications and utilities for healthcare IT. These applications have been developed in the Java programming language for performance and portability.
Here are the Firebird instructions

Eclipse 3.5 / DTP 1.7)
* Stored procedures code should be correct (unverified)
* Trigger code is loaded
* Menu ‘Sample contents’ now works correctly
* (slightly) tested on Eclipse 3.5 / DTP 1.7, untested on Eclipse

I’m pleased to announce availability of the first test version of
FB/Java is a plugin for FB external engines feature, to be presented in
v3.0, that allows execution of Java code at the server side. The plugin
allows classes/resources in the file system or stored in the database.
File system classes/resources are global and the code run with all
permissions. Database classes/resources are per-database and code runs
accordingly with per-engine configured security policy.
Also it seems that is quite fast from Adriano’s tweets
After a request on the Firebird-Java mailinglist, I [Mark Rotteveel] offered to work on creating support for the Firebird database in the Eclipse Data Tools Platform.
Roman Rokytskyy already worked on this some time ago, but his work needs to adapted changed for the current versions of the Eclipse DTP. Last month a bug was filed at Eclipse, and Brian Fitzpatrick created a basic plugin to support Firebird.
I have used Brian’s plugin as my starting point and will merge Roman’s work into that plugin in the coming weeks.
For now the basic plugin will be available for download here. Although the plugin follows the org.eclipse.* naming-convention, it is not (yet) officially condoned by the Eclipse Foundation, and there are still some licensing issues to work out.
