Subject Firebird backup from Delphi (dbExpress) program
Author kimon_the_athenian2

I'm using firebird server from a delphi program via dbExpress. I do
backup using gbak utility.

Now I'm considering using embedded firebird but then I can't keep the
connection to database in my program and execute gbak on that database
at the same time, right?

Is it possible to extract some kind of connection handle from dbExpress
connection component (or ask it from Firebird via SQL?) and use it with
Firebird backup api?

Are there some Pascal wrappers for Firebird API?

thank you!
