I've firebird 1.5.2 on linux and I want to connect local (without
socket communication) to my database.
With jdbc:firebird:local:<my_database> i always get the exception

java.lang.RuntimeException: Failed to initilize jaybird native
library. This is most likley due to a failure to load the firebird
client library.
although i think and are correctly

If I try to connect with jdbc:firebird:native:<my_database> it works.
But then it doesn't use IPC communication, is this right ?
