I had a lot of trouble making Interbase stable. Then I found IBObjects. Now the
sites are running 24/7 and we forget about hourly checks.

It is not the server end that is the problem. The applications have to be well
behaved. BDE certainly is not, and I missed IBX, but understand that that is
only just starting to address transactions correctly. IBObjects works for me.
