Hello Phil,

As I understood from the new features page in Firebird's web site, you
have to write alias information in aliases.conf file. This means another
modification to our code base, precisely what we want to avoid.

We want to execute the following statement


through the JDBC driver and let the server create all the necessary
files automatically in server's directory. Also, we want to execute


to get rid of a database that we don't need anymore.

AFAIK, this is not possible now.
