About this book

Although less publicized than other open source database management systems, Firebird continues to gain a dedicated following of professional users. Figures have already reached hundreds of thousands worldwide, in Firebird's short history in open source. And until now, no other book has been available.

This is the first, official book on Firebird—the free, independent, open source relational database server that emerged in 2000. Based on the actual Firebird Project, this book will provide all you need to know about Firebird database development, like installation, multi-platform configuration, SQL, interfaces, and maintenance.

This comprehensive guide will help you build stable and scalable relational database back-ends for all sizes of client/server networks. The text is well-stocked with tips, code examples, and explanations to reinforce the material covered. This book concentrates on Firebird edition 1.5—complete with updated language, security and optimization features—without neglecting the needs of Firebird 1.0 users.

About the authors

Helen Borrie is a database and application developer, a member of the Firebird project team, and a former journalist who doubles as a technical writer. She is a frequent contributor to support lists for Firebird, InterBase, and Delphi database programming.
