How we use firebird database server from client machine

OTSSolutions asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I have installed the FQB through “fqb_d7.exe” for Delphi 7. I can find four engine component (ADO, BDE, IBX, DBX) on component plate (FastQueryBuilder) but unable to find and use engine for firebird which might be FIBEngine. There is a directory as “fib” in “\FastReports\FastQueryBuilder\source” with packages and source that might be installed with FQB but not found in component.

Issues are:
1.      We are using firebird database and IBO components for connection (IBODatabase for connection) here we don’t need to use any DSN to connect from client machine and its working. For query builder I need to use an engine to provide the connection/database name to get the table list from database. We cannot use BDEEngine due to the DSN requirement on client machine. Is there any way use query builder and fast report from client machine without any installation/setup/configuration?
2.      How I can use Firebird/Interbase Engine for the same?
3.     Using with ADOEngine is working when client/server is the same. Is there any scope to    use ADOEngine and don't need to create/configure any thing on client machine.

I hope you understand my queries and looking forward your help.

Thanks in advance!
