Interbase question

I'm developing a small application in Delphi using Interbase, but I'm in doubt if I should set only an user
and implement by myself the user privileges coding
on the program or if I should use Interbase users
control for it, and if using interbase an example of how to do it. And also if I should create an script and create the table there or make my program create it on first execution? Does anyone know where can I find a kind
of tutorial explaining the best practices when using
Interbase?

The 'best' is a case of requirements, needs, scalability, etc...

Is the app to have any open ports to the web?
How sensitive is the apps data?
How many users?
etc....

You could create an app which uses scripts to add users and grants to tables for higher security, or a simple app for an enclosed LAN using a table to define users and access rights. You don't want to comprimise security but you also don't need to go overboard in a situation that does not require it.

yoda, if I wanted to use the interbase users control. how could I do to implement it inside my application, without needing to go to the interbase console to add users? How would I connect to the database? Should I use an user "for my application" and have it compiled?

What you need is the Interbase Developers Guide. You can download it in PDF format from the IB Pheonix site....let me see here....

Try

If you want to set up users, I would set up a stored procedure to add a new user with user name and such passed as variables, passing the variable and executing Stored_proc at runtime.

yoda, I couldn't find the Interbase developers guide there. can you please gimme the url? and I've got another question, I'm with a IBDataBase and a IBTable linked to it but when I try to activate the IBTable it gives an exception: no read/select permission on table.
and in ISQL I can do an select logged with that user.
and the problem only happens if I try to grant the privileges to a Role and then grant to the user. If I grant all the privileges directly to the User the problem doesn't happen.
