What about the discussions in this newsgroup? Having no other experience
than just reading the news here I would come to the result that connecting
via JCA-JDBC is much more slower than via interclient. Your own posting from
12 of april sais: "InterClient is faster than type 4 driver (usually not
more then
10%, but sometimes up to 100%). Other ones here in this newsgroup talk
about up to 5 times slower. Another posting I found sais that the
firebird network is not optimized, so JCA-JDBC "has to be" slower.

What about these postings? They all end either in the result that JCA-JDBC
is slower or have an open end.
