The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 2.2.6.

This release contains the following fixes:
  • Reverted Firebird 3 workaround for updatable result sets as bug has been fixed in Firebird (JDBC-330)
  • Fixed: Processing and closing the ResultSet from callable statement and then using the getters throws NullPointerException (JDBC-350)
Using both the getters and the result set for the same callable statement is incorrect; the ability to do this might be removed in a future version of Jaybird. A ResultSet should be used for selectable procedures, while the getters should be used with executable procedures.
  • Fixed: FBManagedConnectionFactory.tryCompleteInLimboTransaction doesn't work with recent Firebird 3 builds (JDBC-353)
  • Fixed: Jaybird can throw a NullPointerException when a fatal connection error has occurred (JDBC-359)
  • Fixed: Calling close on a JCA connection triggers exception Connection enlisted in distributed transaction (JDBC-362)
  • Fixed: Potential memory-leak when using a lot of different connection strings and/or properties (JDBC-364)
  • Fixed: FBRowUpdater.buildInsertStatement doesn't quote column names (JDBC-370)
  • Fixed: EncodingFactory doesn't handle UnsupportedCharsetException (JDBC-371)
  • Fixed: Current method of quoting in FBRowUpdater incorrect for dialect 1 (JDBC-372)
The release is also available on maven(*):
<groupId>org.firebirdsql.jdbc</groupId>
<artifactId>jaybird-jdkXX</artifactId>
<version>2.2.6</version>

* The artifactId depends on your target Java version: jaybird-jdk15, jaybird-jdk16, jaybird-jdk17 or jaybird-jdk18.

The Firebird project has released Security Updates for the currently maintained 2.1.x and 2.5.x versions (v2.1.7 and v2.5.3 SU1).

Firebird Project announces the first Beta release of Firebird 3.0, the next major version of the Firebird relational database, which is now available for testing.
 
This Beta release demonstrates the features and improvements currently under development by the Firebird development team. Our users are appreciated giving it a try and providing feedback to the development mailing list. Apparent bugs can be reported directly to the bugtracker.
