Author rpk_2006
I am new to FireBird and want to use it as a back-end to my .NET
applications. I have few queries regarding this:

(1) Is FireBird 100% ANSI-SQL compliant?

(2) Does it support advanced database features like replication,
multi-version concurrency control (MVCC), clustering etc?

(3) Which is the best GUI front-end for working with FireBird?

(4) Can it be easily connected to .NET (1.1/2.0) and what performance
level is achieved with .NET applications?

(5) Does it have an automated backup feature?
