New one :) Interclient 2.01 that is available from SourceForge is not
supported. So, even if you find some bugs there, most likely you will

type 4 driver is developed and supported.

The best way is to check it out directly from SourceForge CVS. Module
name is 'client-java'. In src/build/ directory you will find build
script for ant. In addition, you will need all libraries that are in
the src/lib/ directory at runtime (probably except JDBC 3 classes).

JDBC URL is: jdbc:firebirdsql:host/port:path/to/database.gdb
Driver name: org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBDriver

One of the most popular questions is how to specify character set for
connection. By default, character set for connection is NONE. You can
change this setting by specifying the 'lc_ctype' property in driver
properties. If your environment does not support JDBC driver
properties, you can encode them in URL using standard param encoding
scheme (for example:

Hope this will help you to start.
