Subject Re: [Firebird-general] RE: MySQL versus Firebird
Some people came with other solutions 
Postgresql like api 

I wish it was a lot easier to use but if you create the wrappers then is quite easy to use 
I have seen pascal wrappers , php c api based driver , ruby c api based driver , ibpp 
even simple c wrappers over ibpp
If you go that route you could use the new firebird 3 c++ api
