Author Mark Rotteveel
(a previous version of this mail had an incorrect link)

I have just released Jaybird 2.2.8.

The release can be downloaded from

The release is also available on maven(*):


* The artifactId depends on your target Java version: jaybird-jdk18,
jaybird-jdk17, or jaybird-jdk16.

Full release notes available at

The following has been changed or fixed since Jaybird 2.2.7:

* Support for Java 5 has been dropped
* Fixed: LibreOffice doesn't display tables with more than 41 records
* Improvement: Don't use Firebird provided IP address for connecting
event channel ([JDBC-384](
* Fixed: Connection.getMetaData().getColumns result set contains wrong
(empty) COLUMN_DEF if column type was defined using domain
* Fixed: Unable to retrieve update count after result set
After executing a query that produces a result set, calling
getMoreResults will allow getUpdateCount to actually return the update
count where previously it always returned -1. This also allows obtaining
the update count after a select query (even when executed using
executeQuery). For selects the result will usually be 0.
* Fixed: SELECT statements are processed for getGeneratedKeys by
appending RETURNING (+ all columnnames)
* Fixed: Generated key grammar does not correctly handle quoted table
names ([JDBC-392](
* Fixed: Generated key grammar does not detect returning clause in
update and delete

Kind regards,
