Subject Re: [Firebird-Java] Using JCA-JDBC driver
Author Rick Fincher
Hi Stefan,

I just volunteered to rewrite the release notes for the Driver and I'm
working on that now. Watch this space for a first draft in a few days.

I struggled a little at first too. The stuff I used Interclient with worked
fine with this driver after changing the driver names and connection
parameters in the code.

I didn't have problems until I tried to use the built in connection pooling
and had difficulty finding info.

Roman's hint about looking at the client-java examples refers to

This is in SourceForge's Firebird section. Look under cvs files, browse cvs
files to get there.
