A new release of the Firebird Eclipse plugin is available on
Bugfix and ‘less-is-more’ release
* Code cleanup
* More delegation to standard DTP implementation
* Sourcecode added to distribution
* Now all stored procedures are shown
* Numeric fields are shown correctly in ‘Data > Edit’ (tested in
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
3.4 / DTP 1.6
* Some datatypes introduced in Firebird 2.1 might not work correctly
* DDL for sequence/generators cannot be shown yet
* Some formatting issues with ‘Export DDL’ (especially for triggers)
* Due to changes it is possible that some exceptions occur
(especially on the ‘SQL Results’ tab with previous queries); fix by
removing all previous results or removing Firebird specific results

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.

JbConsole is a Firebird console tool. I have tested with Jython 2.5b3 and Jaybird 2.1.6 .
(java 1.6 on Windows XP and java 1.5 on OS X 10.5)
It’s still toy level, but it seems to be sample implementation of Jaybird and Jython.
See the screen shot
ED:Translated with google , I like his words about Jython
Swing and Java (JVM) I fast. 驚いた。 I was surprised.
I was looking for some tutorial about configuring Squirrel SQL (http://squirrel-sql.sourceforge.net/) to connect to firebird database and unfortunately i couldn’t find one . So when i finally managed to connect, i thought of publishing the steps in my log so that it could be useful to some one else.
Configuring Squirrel Sql to connect to firebird was much easier than i thought.
JBuilder’s database integration capabilities allowed us to build on top of an Oracle database for the larger system and Firebird for the smaller system.
