It specifies the JDBC driver in the creation of the linked table. This is similar to Oracle's database links and MS SQL Servers linked servers. Perhaps this could be done as part of the "FB/Java" plugin that was being developed for Version 3.0?

This was already done in FB/Java, only for select.

It still requires works and currently didn't have a demo in our servers.
If you search the archives of this list, you may look in the svn
repository for the readme, which has examples of this feature.
