Subject Re: Firebird JDBC and database pool

Thank you for the excellent work. I would love to contribute.
However, I am new to java. It would take much longer for me to do
anything useful to the community.

Currently, our application does not use any EJB staff. Could we still
use the Jboss xa ConnectionManager to connect the firebird. I really
would like to try it in a real application for Firebird database.
Once I got to know all the pieces, certainly I would like to
contribute to make it one of the best drivers.

Any information or sample for me to get started.
