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
The Firebird Project is a commercially independent project of C and
C++ programmers, technical advisors and supporters developing and
enhancing a multi-platform relational database management system
based on the source code released by Inprise Corp (now known as
Borland Software Corp) on 25 July, 2000.
FREE LIKE A BIRD. Anyone can build a custom version of Firebird, as
long as the modifications are made available, under the same IDPL
licensing, for others to use and build on.
FREE LIKE FREE BEER. No fees for download, registration, licensing
or deployment, even you distribute Firebird as part of your
commercial software package.
Firebird's development depends on voluntary funding by people who
benefit from using it. Funding options range from donations, through
Firebird Foundation memberships to sponsorship commitments.
Firebird server comes in four flavors: SuperServer, Classic,
SuperClassic and Embedded. You can start with SuperServer. Right
now, Classic is recommended for use with SMP machines and some other
specific situations. SuperServer shares its cache among the database
connections and uses threads to handle each connection. Classic
starts one independent server process for each connection made.
SuperClassic offers multithreaded single process server with
independent cache for each connection.
The embedded version is an amazing variation of the server. It is a
fully featured Firebird server packed in just a few files. It is
very easy to deploy, since there is no need to install the server.
It is ideal for CDROM catalogs, demos or standalone desktop
Firebird comes with a full set of command line utilities that allow
you to create databases, retrieve database statistics, run SQL
commands and scripts, perform backups and restores, etc. If you
prefer to use a GUI (Graphical User Interface) tool, there are lots
of options to choose from, including free ones. Check the list at
the end of this paper for a good start.
On Windows, you can run Firebird as a service or in application
mode. The installer can create an icon in the Control Panel that you
can use to manage the server (start, stop, etc).
