2
3 1. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Numeric types.
4 Scale is no longer ignored.
5
6 2. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Date values
7 not in locale format but which are recognised by Firebird. Date values that
8 cannot be converted to a string using Pascal library are now passed through
9 to Firebird as Text Strings.
10
11 3. Lookup character set name by codepage amended to ensure that CP_UTF8 returns
12 UTF8 and not UNICODE_FSS.
13
14 4. Charset ID problem. When using Firebird 3, with no default database character set
15 and a column has a non-default collation specified, an incorrect character set
16 id was being reported that could result in a 'division by zero' error when
17 used by IBX. This has now been fixed.
18
19 5. Move GetCharsetName, CharSetID2CodePage, CodePage2CharSetID, CharSetName2CharSetID,
20 CharSetWidth from IFirebirdAPI to IAttachment. This is a better data model as
21 the character sets supported can be updated on a per database basis. That is
22 it is possible to add a (Firebird) user defined character set to a database.
23
24 6. Add RegisterCharSet to IAttachment. This is used to register a user defined character
25 set supported by Firebird with the API.
26
27 7. Add missing isc_info_db_read_only to list of decoded Database Information items
28 in FBOutputBlock.pas and update test suite to include this item.
29
30 8. FB30Client: avoid always using "StartMultiple" when only a single database attachment.
31
32 9. Loading Windows fbclient.dll: when using the FIREBIRD variable to locate the client
33 library or finding it by disk location, the PATH environment variable is now also set to
34 include the FIREBIRD directory. This is to ensure that the correct dlls in the
35 firebird client library dependencies are loaded.
36
37 10. Testsuite: Ensure consistent UTF-8 output on Windows console.
38
39 11. Testsuite: Update Windows script to include FPC 3.0.4 in search path.
40
41 12. FB30Statement: Protect call to "Move" and avoid calling with a nil pointer
42
43 13. FB30Statement: A check has been added to ensure that all SQL Parameters
44 have been given a value (including NULL). Previously, failing to set the
45 value of an SQL Parameter could give rise to unpredictable results or
46 an SQLDA error.
47
48 14. FB30Statement/FB25Statement: Set SQLParam "modified" when string value set.
49
50 15. FBAttachment: Avoid string reference count error when processing an Ansistring
51 parameter in an array of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.
52
53 16. FBAttachment: Allow for WideString and UnicodeString parameters in an array
54 of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.

57 FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-2) Sat, 04 Mar 2017 14:43:56 +0000
58
59 1. Change syntax to Mode Delphi
60
61 2. Change all uses of string type to explicit AnsiString in order to ensure
62 compatibility between Delphi and FPC.
63
64 3. Various syntax changes to ensure Delphi and FPC compilation including GUIDs
65 defined for each interface.
66
67 4. Generics syntax variations for Delphi added
68
69 5. PChar replaced with PByte expect where an actual string is being referenced,
70 where PAnsiChar is used instead.
71
72 6. Review of type definitions in IBExternals to ensure Delphi compatibility
73
74 7. Testsuite updated for Delphi
75
76 FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-1) Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:17:57 +0000
77
78 1. Limit maximum Blob segment read/write to MaxuShort. Avoids data loss with
79 large blobs and the FB3 API.
80
81 2. Update Event Handling algorithm to avoid looping due to recreation of the
82 event block.
83
84 3. Avoid invalid XSQLDA error when the only parameter is updated to null
85
86 4. Array Handling: fix problem with text arrays with character set none. When the
87 DB connection has a default character set (e.g. UTF8), an error is raised by
88 Firebird if the space allocated is not enough to allow for transliteration, even
89 though it is not required for character set none.
90
91 5. IBUtils: List of reserved words brought up-to-date
92
93 6. Add ISQL style performance statistics collection to IStatement
94
95 7. Add IFirebirdAPI.CreateDatabase variant to allow execution of user provided
96 CREATE DATABASE statement.
97
98 8. Update SQL Statement parsing to allow for Array Dimensions. That is so that the ':' in
99 an array dimension is not mistaken for a named parameter prefix.
100
101 9. Trim function no longer applied to result of GetAsString for SQL_TEXT
102 when Character set is octets. Avoids loss of non printable characters at start of string.
103
104 10. Add function GetPerfStatistics to IStatement. This returns ISQL like performance
105 statistics for the last action. Requires use of procedure IStatement.EnableStatistics
106 to enable stats gathering.
107
108 11. API Version information added as constants to IB.pas
109
110 12. BlobMetaData character set id should now be the same as that given by IColumnMetaData.GetCharSetID
111
112 13. Firebird Character set "NONE" now interpreted as codepage CP_ACP.
