I still believe that gds is the fastest way to get started with a plan to
replace the JNI stuff with a protocol driver in the future. The semantics
of the java side would be the same for the two drivers and the semantics of
the native library calls would be similar to that of the protocol. That
being said, I would participate in the development of any driver that I
believe can be completed in a reasonable amount of time.

But....I cannot work on a driver that is released under the GPL due to the
commercial nature of my work. Please consider releasing the driver under
the same license as the rest of interbase.

Subject: [IB-Java] New JDBC work started


I have started the development of a new GPLed
JDBC driver (100% pure java) that talk with
3050 port of Firebird.

In a first stage I am focused in developing a
GDS port written in Java. I have worked a lot
with the protocol code of Firebird but any
documentation (or sample code) that somebody
could provide to me will be greatly appreciated.

After that, I am going to fill the gap between
the JDBC and GDS semantics writing a JDBC
implementation using GDS calls. Here the
Interserver code will be of great help.

I hope to make public my code in a few weeks.
