I'm not sure that registering JayBird with DBPilot differs from
registering InterClient or any other JDBC driver. This seems to be a
JBuilder FAQ question, not JayBird's. However, if there are any
differences in the procedure, I would like to know about them - they
seems to be the "bugs" of the driver.

I do not think so. JBuilder (even it is quite popular) is not more
preferred than NetBeans, IDEA IntelliJ, Together, etc. We could
provide an example if JBuilder was a part of FirebirdSQL project, but
since it's commercial tool, I see no place for such example here.

However, I would encourage any movement in the community to create a
place ("sandbox") where such topics will be covered. There are many
issues that are not related to the driver's core, but are not
documented anywhere. Rick started to maintain FAQ for JayBird, but it
seems that it is not enough (one person is physically not able to
have answers on all topics). Currently I see following "sandboxes":

- JBuilder
- Tomcat
- JBoss
- Other (this is sandbox for any other topic, and when this topic
gets the critical mass it will become independend).

Each sandbox would have its own download area, own
leaders/contributors. There are some technical issues (like CVS
access rights, if any), etc. but I'm sure we can solve them.

What do you think?
