Interbase/Firebird Connection

InterBase is a relational database management system (RDBMS) currently developed and marketed by Embarcadero Technologies. InterBase is distinguished from other DBMSs by its small footprint, close to zero administration requirements, and multi-generational architecture. InterBase runs on the Linux, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Solaris operating systems.

Firebird is a relational database offering many ANSI SQL standard features that runs on Linux, Windows, and a variety of Unix platforms. Firebird offers excellent concurrency, high performance, and powerful language support for stored procedures and triggers. It has been used in production systems, under a variety of names, since 1981.

In order to create an Interbase/Firebird connection, the following steps should be followed:

  • In the Name Text Box type in a new name for the connection you are about to create
  • Type in the database name
  • Fill in Username/Password for the database you wish to connect to
  • Click Test Connection to ensure the details you have provided are correct
  • Click OK to close the connection properties window
