Subject Re: Driver status

Great news! My colegues say that Firebird with our driver is faster
than PostgreSQL with its driver, but I didn't expect that we can
outperform InterClient! :) Thanks a lot for such great news!

Can you perform similar testing with InterClient 2.5? It is part of
InterBase 6.5 distribution that is available for evaluation download
from Borland site? This can be also useful for IB Phoenix people in
promoting Firebird project.

BTW, is jDatamaster available for evaluation? If yes, is your test
suite available? I can try to make this by myself.


P.S. Beware of IB 6.5, I suspect that you can have either IB or FB on
machine. :)
