Subject can firebirdsql input/output as json or xml?
Author slucas
i know this is thinking way outside the box.

but is there anyway that firebird can take a pure select statement as a pure string, sent to its 3050 port and then output as a json or xml record or set of records?

just curious.  wonder what it would take?  i know there are web frameworks that can do that easily, but just wondering if a database could do that directly without the appliance in the middle.
