I am experimenting object/relational persistence using Hibernate
( and Firebird.

When I run the Hibernate demo ( it connects OK to the
but when it try's to create Tables by the following SQL an exception

create table vertex (creationDate DATE, name VARCHAR(255) not null
strength FLOAT, version_number INTEGER not null, vertex_id NUMERIC
(18,0) not
null, vertex_type VARCHAR(255) not null, primary key (vertex_id))

I have also try IB Expert and it gives the following message

This operation is not defined for system tables.
unsuccessful metadata update.
key size too big for index RDB$8.

What do I have to do to get it to work?
