Jaybird 2.2.11 released, with the following fixes since Jaybird 2.2.10:

  • Fixed: Dialect 1, NUMERIC(15,2) and DatabaseMetadata.getColumn returns 0 for DECIMAL_DIGITS (JDBC-426)
  • Updated error messages from latest Firebird 3 to add missing messages (JDBC-428)
  • Fixed: ResultSet.getObject() returns byte[] instead of String for BLOB SUB_TYPE 1 when using octetsAsBytes (JDBC-431)
  • Improvement: Support Firebird 3 48-bit transaction ids. (JDBC-432)
    Note that FBMaintenanceManager.commit/rollbackTransaction(long) with longer than 32 bit transaction ids requires Firebird 3.0.1 because of CORE-5224.
  • Fixed: Batch insert with setBinaryStream inserts an empty BLOB SUB_TYPE TEXT (JDBC-433)
    This is the same issue as JDBC-312 that was fixed in Jaybird 2.2.4 for BLOB SUB_TYPE BINARY.
  • Changed locking to coarser blocks with - as far as possible - a single lock object per connection for all connection-derived objects (JDBC-435)
    This should prevent deadlocks on concurrent access as in some cases locks were obtained in different orders (eg (statement, connection), and (connection, statement)). The downside is reduced concurrency, but as using a connection from multiple threads concurrently is discouraged anyway, that is an acceptable price to pay.

The following are known in issues in Jaybird 2.2.11 (and earlier):

  • Connecting to Firebird 2.5 and earlier with a Firebird 3 fbclient.dll may be slow with native connections, see CORE-4658. Workaround is to connect to the IPv4 address instead of the hostname.

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