2 tony 59
3 tony 209 1. Firebird.pas: {$OBJECTCHECKS OFF} added to file to avoid runtime error when
4     program compiled with -CR command line switch.
5    
6     2. IServiceManager additions (informational):
7     function getProtocol: TProtocol;
8     function getPortNo: AnsiString;
9    
10     3. IServiceManager improved error handling. Interfaces changed:
11     function Start(Request: ISRB; RaiseExceptionOnError: boolean=true): boolean;
12     function Query(SQPB: ISQPB; Request: ISRB; RaiseExceptionOnError: boolean=true) :IServiceQueryResults; overload;
13     function Query(Request: ISRB; RaiseExceptionOnError: boolean=true) :IServiceQueryResults; overload;
14    
15     4. IAttachment addition (informational)
16     function GetSecurityDatabase: AnsiString;
17    
18     5. IStatement: performance counters now updated after each Fetch. GetPerfStatistics
19     thus now returns accumulated stats for a select statement from opening a cursor
20     up to the last fetch.
21    
22     6. DARWIN: uloadlibrary.inc bug fix. Many thanks to Luigi Naimi for correcting
23     the problem.
24    
25     7. Type change: "TPerfCounters = array[TPerfStats] of Int64". Note "Int64"
26     replaces deprecated "comp" type.
27    
28 tony 217 10. Testsuite Test10 updated to include thread synchronisation for event reporting.

31 tony 209 FBINTF Change Log version (1.1-1) Tue, 27 Feb 2018 16:51:16 +0000
32    
33 tony 107 1. IBUtils.QuoteIdentifierIfNeeded: Add check for space character.
34    
35 tony 109 2. IAttachment: add two new methods
36     function HasDefaultCharSet: boolean;
37     function GetDefaultCharSetID: integer;
38    
39     These return, respectively, true if a connection default character set was
40 tony 117 specified and the character set id of the connection default character set.
41     The DefaultCharSetID is cached when the connection is opened and hence does not
42     require a database lookup.
43 tony 109
44 tony 110 3. Avoid exception when a text blob is a stored procedure parameter.
45 tony 109
46 tony 111 4. Update test suite to include a test for a stored proc returning a text blob.
47    
48 tony 117 5. IAttachment: add
49     function GetRemoteProtocol: AnsiString;
50     function GetODSMajorVersion: integer;
51     function GetODSMinorVersion: integer;
52 tony 143 function GetAuthenticationMethod: AnsiString;
53 tony 117
54     These results are cached when the connection is opened and hence do not
55     require a database lookup.
56    
57     6. IAttachment: add "function GetConnectString: AnsiString;" This returns the
58     connect string used to create/connect to the database.
59    
60     7. IAttachment: Create Database using SQL statement. The username and password
61     are now extracted and used to populate a DPB made available via IAttachment.getDPB.
62     It is now possible to use IAttachment disconnect/connect to reconnect to
63     a database for which the initial connection was established by a create
64 tony 120 database sql statement. Available in FPC only.
65 tony 117
66     8. Update Test 1 to test 5, 6 and 7 above.
67    
68     9. IBUtils code tidy up.
69    
70 tony 143 10. Parameter Block interfaces "find" method. As documented, this should have
71     returned a nil interface when the item could not be found. Instead, an empty
72     interface item was returned. "Find" now works as documented and will return
73     a nil interface if the item cannot be found.
74    
75     11. DBInformation: support added for isc_info_active_tran_count and isc_info_creation_date.
76    
77     12. DBInformation: New interfaces: IDIRB and IDIRBItem added to support DB Information
78     requests with additional parameters. This is to enable support for fb_info_page_contents
79     (return of page contents). Response to fb_info_page_contents returned as
80     a string with code page CP_NONE.
81    
82     13. DBInformation: Support for fb_info_pages_used and fb_info_pages_free added, plus
83     test suite updated.
84    
85     14. DBInformation: Support for fb_info_crypt_key (Firebird 3.0.3 onwards) added as
86     a string type, and fb_info_conn_flags (Firebird 3.0.3 onwards) added as an integer type.
87    
88     15. Service Manager: List of protocols supported expanded to include inet, wnet and xnet.
89     An overloaded version of IIFirebirdAPI.GetServiceManager also allows a non
90     default connection port to be specified.
91    
92 tony 107 FBINTF Change Log version (1.1-0) Sun, 07 Jan 2018 15:20:02 +0000
93    
94 tony 59 1. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Numeric types.
95     Scale is no longer ignored.
96    
97     2. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Date values
98     not in locale format but which are recognised by Firebird. Date values that
99     cannot be converted to a string using Pascal library are now passed through
100     to Firebird as Text Strings.
101    
102 tony 60 3. Lookup character set name by codepage amended to ensure that CP_UTF8 returns
103     UTF8 and not UNICODE_FSS.
104    
105     4. Charset ID problem. When using Firebird 3, with no default database character set
106     and a column has a non-default collation specified, an incorrect character set
107     id was being reported that could result in a 'division by zero' error when
108     used by IBX. This has now been fixed.
109    
110     5. Move GetCharsetName, CharSetID2CodePage, CodePage2CharSetID, CharSetName2CharSetID,
111     CharSetWidth from IFirebirdAPI to IAttachment. This is a better data model as
112     the character sets supported can be updated on a per database basis. That is
113     it is possible to add a (Firebird) user defined character set to a database.
114    
115     6. Add RegisterCharSet to IAttachment. This is used to register a user defined character
116     set supported by Firebird with the API.
117    
118 tony 61 7. Add missing isc_info_db_read_only to list of decoded Database Information items
119     in FBOutputBlock.pas and update test suite to include this item.
120 tony 60
121 tony 63 8. FB30Client: avoid always using "StartMultiple" when only a single database attachment.
122 tony 61
123 tony 68 9. Loading Windows fbclient.dll: when using the FIREBIRD variable to locate the client
124     library or finding it by disk location, the PATH environment variable is now also set to
125     include the FIREBIRD directory. This is to ensure that the correct dlls in the
126     firebird client library dependencies are loaded.
127 tony 63
128 tony 68 10. Testsuite: Ensure consistent UTF-8 output on Windows console.
129    
130     11. Testsuite: Update Windows script to include FPC 3.0.4 in search path.
131    
132     12. FB30Statement: Protect call to "Move" and avoid calling with a nil pointer
133    
134     13. FB30Statement: A check has been added to ensure that all SQL Parameters
135     have been given a value (including NULL). Previously, failing to set the
136     value of an SQL Parameter could give rise to unpredictable results or
137     an SQLDA error.
138    
139     14. FB30Statement/FB25Statement: Set SQLParam "modified" when string value set.
140    
141 tony 70 15. FBAttachment: Avoid string reference count error when processing an Ansistring
142     parameter in an array of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.
143 tony 68
144 tony 70 16. FBAttachment: Allow for WideString and UnicodeString parameters in an array
145     of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.
146

149 tony 47
150 tony 56 1. Change syntax to Mode Delphi
151    
152     2. Change all uses of string type to explicit AnsiString in order to ensure
153     compatibility between Delphi and FPC.
154    
155     3. Various syntax changes to ensure Delphi and FPC compilation including GUIDs
156     defined for each interface.
157    
158     4. Generics syntax variations for Delphi added
159    
160     5. PChar replaced with PByte expect where an actual string is being referenced,
161     where PAnsiChar is used instead.
162    
163     6. Review of type definitions in IBExternals to ensure Delphi compatibility
164    
165     7. Testsuite updated for Delphi
166    
167     FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-1) Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:17:57 +0000
168    
169 tony 47 1. Limit maximum Blob segment read/write to MaxuShort. Avoids data loss with
170     large blobs and the FB3 API.
171    
172     2. Update Event Handling algorithm to avoid looping due to recreation of the
173     event block.
174    
175     3. Avoid invalid XSQLDA error when the only parameter is updated to null
176    
177     4. Array Handling: fix problem with text arrays with character set none. When the
178     DB connection has a default character set (e.g. UTF8), an error is raised by
179     Firebird if the space allocated is not enough to allow for transliteration, even
180     though it is not required for character set none.
181    
182     5. IBUtils: List of reserved words brought up-to-date
183    
184     6. Add ISQL style performance statistics collection to IStatement
185    
186     7. Add IFirebirdAPI.CreateDatabase variant to allow execution of user provided
187     CREATE DATABASE statement.
188    
189     8. Update SQL Statement parsing to allow for Array Dimensions. That is so that the ':' in
190     an array dimension is not mistaken for a named parameter prefix.
191    
192     9. Trim function no longer applied to result of GetAsString for SQL_TEXT
193     when Character set is octets. Avoids loss of non printable characters at start of string.
194    
195     10. Add function GetPerfStatistics to IStatement. This returns ISQL like performance
196     statistics for the last action. Requires use of procedure IStatement.EnableStatistics
197     to enable stats gathering.
198    
199     11. API Version information added as constants to IB.pas
200    
201     12. BlobMetaData character set id should now be the same as that given by IColumnMetaData.GetCharSetID
202    
203     13. Firebird Character set "NONE" now interpreted as codepage CP_ACP.
