Subject Re: [firebird-support] Using Delphi IBX component with FB 1.5
Author Eddie Bush
From what I understand, you can use all the components
on the 'IB Admin' tab just fine (the service
components). I have had excellent luck using them in
Delphi 7.0. You are correct though in noting that you
will be bound to using gds32.dll.

I believe someone said those were open-source
components. I have no clue which environment they
were developed in (guessing C), but you could probably
port them to use fbclient instead of gds32 ...
assuming the license allows that (it's open-source
from what I hear so you should be able to).

Unfortunately, if my sources are correct, the
developer does not intend to continue keeping those in
sync with Firebird so they may not always work :-(

I would be very interested in any cross-platform
(ib/fb) alternatives you might find.

Hi everyone,

I would just like to know whether it is safe to use
the Delphi IBX
TIBSecurityService with Firebird 1.5? I would actually
prefer not to use it
since as far as I know it binds me to use GDS32.DLL.
Are there any other
components or libraries I can use to modify the SYSDBA
password from my
Delphi application?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
