The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 2.2.8.

This release contains the following changes and fixes:

  • Support for Java 5 has been dropped
  • Fixed: LibreOffice doesn't display tables with more than 41 records (JDBC-383)
  • Improvement: Don't use Firebird provided IP address for connecting event channel (JDBC-384)
  • Fixed: Connection.getMetaData().getColumns result set contains wrong (empty) COLUMN_DEF if column type was defined using domain (JDBC-388)
  • Fixed: Unable to retrieve update count after result set (JDBC-390)
    After executing a query that produces a result set, calling getMoreResults will allow getUpdateCount to actually return the update count where previously it always returned -1. This also allows obtaining the update count after a select query (even when executed using executeQuery). For selects the result will usually be 0.
  • Fixed: SELECT statements are processed for getGeneratedKeys by appending RETURNING (+ all columnnames) (JDBC-391)
  • Fixed: Generated key grammar does not correctly handle quoted table names (JDBC-392)
  • Fixed: Generated key grammar does not detect returning clause in update and delete (JDBC-393)

The release is also available on maven(*):

<groupId>org.firebirdsql.jdbc</groupId>
<artifactId>jaybird-jdkXX</artifactId>
<version>2.2.8</version>

* The artifactId depends on your target Java version: jaybird-jdk18, jaybird-jdk17, or jaybird-jdk16.
