It depends on the Firebird version. Support for the Services API in
Classic got better and better with each release. According to the
release notes, Firebird 2.0 got full Services API support, even in Classic.

For DBW (and any other Services API application) this means, retrieving
the Firebird log file via the Services API will work with Firebird 2.0
Classic, but not with Firebird 1.5. At least not with 1.5.3 which I have
