Hi Frans,

I've just noticed that the final release version of firebird 1.5 has made its way out the door.

A while ago you mentioned adding support for firebird. Is this still on the cards? It would be good to have support for an open source db system as well as commercial ones.

Many thanks for all your great work.

John

Yes they're definitely scheduled to be supported. As MySql is requested a lot, I'll first give that a go, however I think it will be a bit problematic due to the absence of some key features. Firebird / interbase is scheduled after that. If I run into problems with MySql I'll drop that till a later date and will support firebird first. The biggest problem with MySql is the absence of FK constraints (it supports this only in the very latest release, probably not in use by a lot of people).

I'd second that request for Firebird. Could you give us any idea of time frame (3 months, 6 months?).

It's in the works at the moment.

It looks good. The problem is only that it requires changes to the core libs of LLBLGen Pro as I have to add another dialog. This made me move the connection dialogs to the drivers. This change is a forward compatible issue, so it will make that people have to migrate to the new version. I'll plan the release of teh firebird driver together with the gui updates also in teh works at the moment.

Carlos Alvarez who wrote the Firebird .NET provider included a nice interface to the meta data of a database. This really is a timesaver. He also wrote a postgresql provider with ... the same interface Regular Smiley So that should be somewhat easier.

It will be april/may before postgresql will be supported though.

Firebird: What's the story, Morning Glory? ;-)

I see that you said you would drop mysql if it wasn't going well and focus on firebird. I have a potential firebird project. Is there a general timeframe for this driver?

It looks good. The provider by Carlos is solid. Firebird is not a hard database. I have had to make changes to the driver structure though (moved the connection parameters control into the drivers) as the current setup wasn't flexible enough.

MySql has to wait till the gui enhancements like creating a relation, setting a field to have a UC etc are implemented. Firebird will be released with these gui enhancements. I hope to have a beta within 4 weeks.
