The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 2.2.7.

This release contains the following fix:
  • Fixed: blob return value of executable procedure obtained through getters on CallableStatement is 8 byte blob id, instead of expected blob content (JDBC-381)
This was a regression caused by the changes of JDBC-350.
 
The release is also available on maven(*):
<groupId>org.firebirdsql.jdbc</groupId>
<artifactId>jaybird-jdkXX</artifactId>
<version>2.2.7</version>

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

Accordingly to its release lifetime policy, Firebird Project notifies that the Firebird v2.1 series has reached its end-of-life and thus will not be maintained anymore.

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.
