Release Date File Name Size Description
Jaybird 2.2.8
May 31, 2015 7.4 MB Jaybird 2.2.8 for Java 8 / JDBC 4.2, zip kit
May 31, 2015 7.3 MB Jaybird 2.2.8 for Java 7 / JDBC 4.1, zip kit
May 31, 2015 7.3 MB Jaybird 2.2.8 for Java 6 / JDBC 4.0, zip kit

Jaybird 2.2.8 released, with the following fixes since Jaybird 2.2.7:

  • Support for Java 5 has been dropped
  • Fixed: LibreOffice doesn't display tables with more than 41 records (JDBC-383)
  • Improvement: Don't use Firebird provided IP address for connecting event channel (JDBC-384)
  • Fixed: Connection.getMetaData().getColumns result set contains wrong (empty) COLUMN_DEF if column type was defined using domain (JDBC-388)
  • Fixed: Unable to retrieve update count after result set (JDBC-390)
    After executing a query that produces a result set, calling getMoreResults will allow getUpdateCount to actually return the update count where previously it always returned -1. This also allows obtaining the update count after a select query (even when executed using executeQuery). For selects the result will usually be 0.
  • Fixed: SELECT statements are processed for getGeneratedKeys by appending RETURNING (+ all columnnames) (JDBC-391)
  • Fixed: Generated key grammar does not correctly handle quoted table names (JDBC-392)
  • Fixed: Generated key grammar does not detect returning clause in update and delete (JDBC-393)

The following are known in issues in Jaybird 2.2.8 (and earlier):

  • ResultSets opened with CLOSE_CURSORS_AT_COMMIT aren't correctly closed on commit when auto-commit is off (JDBC-307)
  • Using FBEventManager with Firebird 3, NATIVE (or EMBEDDED) protocol and a Firebird 3 fbclient/fbembed can crash the JVM with an access violation (JDBC-398)

This list is not exhaustive, see the Jaybird tracker for a full list of open bugs.
