Subject Firebird, kylix and dbexpress
Author Jon Perez
What is the recommended way of writing a client
running on Linux to access a Firebird database?
Is dbExpress under Kylix a good choice?

I would find it very ironic (and downright stupid
or schizophrenic) if Borland improved their dbExpress
drivers for PostgreSQL and MySQL 3/4 and yet made
it so that their dbExpress drivers won't work with
Firebird. Is there any chance or fear that Borland
will future versions of dbExpress (whether under Kylix
or Delphi) incompatible with Firebird? Or can we
take it for granted that we can always use Borland's
dbExpress Interbase drivers with Firebird?
