Subject RE: [firebird-support] How to check if Firebird is running ?

How do you know that your client application is the only application that is
using the server? That is, how can you know that it's even OK to stop the
server? The direct answer to your question would probably involve looking at
the running services (assuming the server is on Windows).

However, if your application is the *only one* that uses that firebird
server (and therefore would be free to start/stop the service at will), why
don't you simply use the embedded version?

Subject: [firebird-support] How to check if Firebird is running ?

I am using Firebird 2.0.1 with Delphi 7 application.
I need to check from within the application code if Firebird server is
currently running. How to do that ?

Also, a related question:
How to stop the Firebird running from within the Delphi application
(programmatically) ? What run commands need to be issued?
