I have been a major contributor to Firebird since 2003, also my previous company "BASX", which I was the Head developer of, was a gold sponsor of Firebird.
I have recently moved to another company that uses SQLAnywhere.
They are interested in moving to Firebird.
But Firebird does not have some of the key features of SQL Anywhere, they depend on a lot.
like "XMLForest", "XMLElement", etc, full XML compatibility is available in both SQLAnywhere and Oracle.
like local temporary tables/ Hash Tables.
like enabled select column aliases to be reused in same SQL.
SELECT (x/y) AS MYDIV
,MYDIV * Z AS MYDIVMULTIPLIED
Is it possible. If I put an option on the table, that the company I work for sponsors Firebird. and then Firebird could add this type of stuff?
