Subject Re: [Firebird-Java] Re: First Shot at Performance Test

For me it was quite interesting since we currently think about using
Firebird or PostgreSQL in a project. IMHO PostgreSQL is close to Firebird if
you look at the characteristics. Therefore it isnot easy to choose.

Perhaps somebody else can provide information about this comparison?

BTW: I tried to import the Firebird JDBC source into eclipse which worked.
But eclipse did not find some classes although I declared them in the
project properties. Anyone who has instructions on how to import [and
compile] Firebird jdbc in eclipse?

Thanks in advance.
