My thoughts on JDBC are

1. A pure java client solution such as Interclient provides is essential
for marketing reasons. It also simplifies deployment. We have a free
software project (VisibleResults - a fundraising database, see which uses Interbase. Thanks to Interclient being pure
java the build process for new developers is as simple as possible
(Install firebird, interserver, jdk1.3 and ant then checkout the code
and type "ant fullcompile" then "ant run")

2. A higher speed driver using native code is attractive for deployment
of web based applications. But not for user clients.
