The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 2.2.6.

This release contains the following fixes:
  • Reverted Firebird 3 workaround for updatable result sets as bug has been fixed in Firebird (JDBC-330)
  • Fixed: Processing and closing the ResultSet from callable statement and then using the getters throws NullPointerException (JDBC-350)
Using both the getters and the result set for the same callable statement is incorrect; the ability to do this might be removed in a future version of Jaybird. A ResultSet should be used for selectable procedures, while the getters should be used with executable procedures.
  • Fixed: FBManagedConnectionFactory.tryCompleteInLimboTransaction doesn't work with recent Firebird 3 builds (JDBC-353)
  • Fixed: Jaybird can throw a NullPointerException when a fatal connection error has occurred (JDBC-359)
  • Fixed: Calling close on a JCA connection triggers exception Connection enlisted in distributed transaction (JDBC-362)
  • Fixed: Potential memory-leak when using a lot of different connection strings and/or properties (JDBC-364)
  • Fixed: FBRowUpdater.buildInsertStatement doesn't quote column names (JDBC-370)
  • Fixed: EncodingFactory doesn't handle UnsupportedCharsetException (JDBC-371)
  • Fixed: Current method of quoting in FBRowUpdater incorrect for dialect 1 (JDBC-372)
The release is also available on maven(*):
<groupId>org.firebirdsql.jdbc</groupId>
<artifactId>jaybird-jdkXX</artifactId>
<version>2.2.6</version>

* The artifactId depends on your target Java version: jaybird-jdk15, jaybird-jdk16, jaybird-jdk17 or jaybird-jdk18.

The Firebird project has released Security Updates for the currently maintained 2.1.x and 2.5.x versions (v2.1.7 and v2.5.3 SU1). These updates fix a recently discovered security vulnerability (CORE-4630) that may be used for a remote DoS attack that could be performed by unauthorised users. We recommend Firebird users to upgrade as soon as is practical.
