Subject Problem with Jaybird 2.2 or 2.1 and Firebird 2.5 beta 1
Author Peter Welch

You don't state anywhere that Jaybird works with Firebird 2.5 but I've been using it for a few months. Recently, though, it's started to fail - the database communication locks up and won't make any connection at all. I tried Jaybird 2.2 instead of 2.1.6 but get the same result - though it worked for about an hour. So, I have two questions:

1) Is Jaybird 2.2 (or 2.1.x) designed to work with Firebird 2.5?

2) Are there special considerations for Firebird 2.5?

I use Jaybird as the Firebird 2.5 (runs on Linux 64) database connection in OrionHealth's Rhapsody Interface Engine (runs on AIX 64). If I drop back to Firebird 2.1 - everything runs well. Maybe it's a Firebird 2.5 problem unrelated to Jaybird.
