Under Delphi, not. As is explained repeatedly throughout the documentation, embedded is a *deployment* model. For developing, when you need separate applications to connect simultaneously to the same database (as in Delphi + your app, when you use Run, and/or when accessing the database with utility tools), use Classic (2.0 and higher) or Superserver (if you are tied to using Fb 1.5).

Reason for the difference: the "local connect" protocol is not available to Classic in v.1.5.
