We are happy to announce the release of Jaybird 5.0.1 and Jaybird 4.0.9.

Jaybird 5.0.1

The following has been fixed since Jaybird 5.0.0:

  • Fixed: Executing DML with a RETURNING clause containing a blob column would return the blob-id instead of the blob value (jaybird#728)

  • Fixed: CallableStatement.getString and CallableStatement.getObject would incorrectly trim string values (jaybird#729)

  • Fixed: ResultSetMetaData.getPrecision(int) of a connectionless result set could throw a NullPointerException if the column was of type FLOAT or DOUBLE PRECISION (jaybird#730)

Jaybird 5 supports Firebird 2.5 and higher, on Java 8, 11, 17 and 19 (support for Java 11 and higher using the Java 11 version of the driver).

Jaybird 4.0.9

The following has been fixed since Jaybird 4.0.8:

  • Fixed: Some methods of FBClob threw NullPointerException when attempting to use after implicit or explicit free() (jaybird#719)

  • Improvement: If the default JVM time zone is a GMT offset, e.g. GMT-08:00, configure sessionTimeZone with offset only, e.g. -08:00 (jaybird#720)

  • Fixed: Executing DML with a RETURNING clause containing a blob column would return the blob-id instead of the blob value (jaybird#728)

  • Fixed: CallableStatement.getString would incorrectly trim string values (jaybird#729)

  • Fixed: ResultSetMetaData.getPrecision(int) of a connectionless result set could throw a NullPointerException if the column was of type FLOAT or DOUBLE PRECISION (jaybird#730)

Jaybird 4 supports Firebird 2.5 and higher, on Java 7, 8, 11, 17 and 19 (support for Java 11 and higher using the Java 11 version of the driver).

We are happy to announce the first release of Jaybird 5.

Jaybird 5 is — from a JDBC perspective — an incremental change from Jaybird 4. However, internally, Jaybird underwent some major changes, the biggest was the removal of JCA (Java Connector Architecture) support.

The major changes and new features in Jaybird 5 are:

  • Java 7 support dropped

  • Java Connector Architecture (JCA) support removed

  • ChaCha wire protocol encryption support (Java 11 and higher only)

  • Changes to properties

  • Unification of database and service addressing

  • Changes to JDBC URL syntax

  • Removal of LOCAL protocol implementation

  • Stream blobs are now the default

  • New parser for generated keys handling (back-ported to Jaybird 4.0.8)

  • Firebird 4.0 server-side batch updates

  • Firebird 5.0 multi-row RETURNING support

  • Firebird Embedded locator service provider (experimental)

  • Table statistics of a connection (experimental)
