  • Fixed: CallableStatement.getMetaData() and getParameterMetaData() call throws exception when no input parameters provided when out parameter registered (JDBC-402)

The following are known in issues in Jaybird 2.2.9 (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.
