Release Notes: Due to critical fixes everybody using versions between 2.1.2 and 2.1.5 is advised to upgrade to this new version to avoid data corruption when doing updates and the table has a composite primary key. Cases where table's primary key has only one column or there is no primary key at all are not affected.
Release Notes: This release fixes only one bug, related to the situation in which developers use the DatabaseMetaData class with identifiers/patterns with a case different to the one in the database. The solution is to try to execute the query with the original case, and when nothing is found, another query with uppercased identifiers is executed. In the worst case, this will cause two queries to be executed against the database, which can lead to performance loss.
Release Notes: Support was added for Firebird events. New JNI code supporting multiple client libraries was added. Performance for BLOB columns was improved.
Release Notes: Support for Firebird events was added. A few other features and fixes were done.
Release Notes: Fyracle support was removed, as it will be shipped separately with Fyracle.
Release Notes: This release has updatable result set support, batch updates in CallableStatement, unified connection properties, no caching in auto-commit mode, JDK 5.0 support, full support for the Firebird Services API (manage users, backup/restore, database statistics, and database maintenance).
Release Notes: A NullPointerException which occurred when an error happens during reconnection was fixed. Calling commit/rollback in Oracle mode is now allowed. The issue with calendar in the PreparedStatement.setTime method was fixed. The keepStatements parameter was added.
Release Notes: It is now possible to specify both isc_dpb_lc_ctype and charSet encodings. Previously, the driver used the default JVM encoding to convert bytes into strings; now you can enforce the encoding you like and not depend on the regional settings of the host OS. There should be no more invalid statement handles, and result sets should be correctly released when using the connection pool. The bug with "cannot start transaction, local transaction active" is (hopefully) gone.
Release Notes: This release features full JDBC 2.0 compatibility (by passing the JDBC CTS 1.3.1 suite), new JDBC and X/Open specification features, and a group of Firebird-specific interface features. The Type 2 driver support now enables use of all of the supported Firebird client models. The JDBC connection pool has been completely reimplemented, with multi-threaded connections, prepared statement caching, and more enhancements.
Release Notes: This release adds full JDBC 2.0 compatibility (which passed the JDBC CTS 1.3.1 suite), full callable statement support, and batch updates. X/Open SQL states are now reported by SQLException. Syntax support for stored procedures and functions has been escaped. JDBC specs deviations have been fixed.
