You will not be able to run the Firebird database on an iPod of iPhone
without significant development work.

Morfik may/may not have ported the embedded version to run on it. Asking the
questions here will not help - it wasn't a project by the Firebird
Community, but by Morfik.

It's not just a matter of downloading and/or putting in a code.

You can run Firebird on a server (Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, HPUX, SGI), and
write an application on the iPhone/iPod to connect back to it over
ODBC/SOAP/JSON/HTTP/XML, which will be the easiest method.

Easiest, but not trivial. I trust you've written software for the
iPhone/iPod before... J

Thank you for responding. First, I have to apologize for not knowing your
contributions to this project. I am quite new in this and am doing research
for a friend to see if it is possible.
I wrote Morfik an email for help. I specifically want to know if I can run
Firebird SQL on the Iphone or Ipod Touch and what I have to do make it
happen. Do I have to simply download it and then it will run or should I put
a code or something...

That would be me. Thanks to Alexandre Benson for calling my attention to
this discussion. I'm an infrequent visitor to this forum.

Morfik is a Web development tool, designed to create Ajax applications. When
the iPhone first came out, Steve Jobs pitched that the only way to create
applications for it was to create web applications.

Morfik moved to support this and Morfik Ajax applications work quite well in
the iPhone's mobile Safari and it is quite easy to create them.

Morfik is not a native iPhone development platform and therefore the
firebird mentioned is running on a web server or a database server behind a
web server, not on the phone itself.

As it was mentioned here, I was involved with Morfik and still maintain a
blog about the product. You can get official information directly from them,
however, as I'm not affiliated with the company.

I hope this helped...
