Hi folks,

I´d like to know what are the FREE components (solutions) to connect to a FIREBIRD database.

I just know ZEOS.

Please, dont recommend me IBX or dbExpress, because these were developed to INTERBASE (not FIREBIRD).

Best regards.

i HIGHLY recommend ZEOS, totally free, even for commercion apps. open source.
www.zeoslib.net

you can connect to:
Firebird 1.0 - 1.5
InterBase 5.0 - 7.5

i am using them now to connect to mysql, but i have used with firebird embedded for a small aplicattion... they did it well !

cheers!

Thx. guys...

Corsita, i dont know how to use ZQuery with ZUpdateSQL... It seems that there are restrictions to some SQL instructions... Do you know something?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I am using native Borland components from the tab InterBase of the Delphi IDE (IBTable, IBQuery, IBDatabase ...).

Interbase and Firebird are almost 100% compartible. I am using IBX (included in D7) with Firebird and I don't have problems...

Hi Ivanov, thx. for your comments.

I agree that INTERBASE and FIREBIRD were almost 100% compatible but this happened until the FIREBIRD 1.0. Now, with 1.5 and 1.5.1, it is not almost 100% compatible.

hi,
ZUpdateSQL is like TUpdateSQL (check the delphi manual)

When u have a complex query ( a JOIN for example) and u change a record of the dataset, is a possible update for 2 or more tables at same time right? this is the case where u should use ZUpdateSQL. ZQuery cant resolve the update for itself. You link the ZQuery with a ZUpdateSQL, and use it to update the data.
It may be some work there, you are right.

if this is a real problem, go for other component, but i still recommend zeos for you.

cheers
