1 FBINTF Change Log version (1.1-2) Mon, 16 Apr 2018 09:30:32 +0100
2
3 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 10. Testsuite Test10 updated to include thread synchronisation for event reporting.
29
30 11. URL Connection Strings: inet4 and inet6 now recognised.
31
32 12. IBUtils: Parse and Make Connect String now recognise URL style loopback syntax.
33
34 13. IAttachment.CharSetName2CharSetID is now performed case insensitive.
35
36
37 FBINTF Change Log version (1.1-1) Tue, 27 Feb 2018 16:51:16 +0000
38
39 1. IBUtils.QuoteIdentifierIfNeeded: Add check for space character.
40
41 2. IAttachment: add two new methods
42 function HasDefaultCharSet: boolean;
43 function GetDefaultCharSetID: integer;
44
45 These return, respectively, true if a connection default character set was
46 specified and the character set id of the connection default character set.
47 The DefaultCharSetID is cached when the connection is opened and hence does not
48 require a database lookup.
49
50 3. Avoid exception when a text blob is a stored procedure parameter.
51
52 4. Update test suite to include a test for a stored proc returning a text blob.
53
54 5. IAttachment: add
55 function GetRemoteProtocol: AnsiString;
56 function GetODSMajorVersion: integer;
57 function GetODSMinorVersion: integer;
58 function GetAuthenticationMethod: AnsiString;
59
60 These results are cached when the connection is opened and hence do not
61 require a database lookup.
62
63 6. IAttachment: add "function GetConnectString: AnsiString;" This returns the
64 connect string used to create/connect to the database.
65
66 7. IAttachment: Create Database using SQL statement. The username and password
67 are now extracted and used to populate a DPB made available via IAttachment.getDPB.
68 It is now possible to use IAttachment disconnect/connect to reconnect to
69 a database for which the initial connection was established by a create
70 database sql statement. Available in FPC only.
71
72 8. Update Test 1 to test 5, 6 and 7 above.
73
74 9. IBUtils code tidy up.
75
76 10. Parameter Block interfaces "find" method. As documented, this should have
77 returned a nil interface when the item could not be found. Instead, an empty
78 interface item was returned. "Find" now works as documented and will return
79 a nil interface if the item cannot be found.
80
81 11. DBInformation: support added for isc_info_active_tran_count and isc_info_creation_date.
82
83 12. DBInformation: New interfaces: IDIRB and IDIRBItem added to support DB Information
84 requests with additional parameters. This is to enable support for fb_info_page_contents
85 (return of page contents). Response to fb_info_page_contents returned as
86 a string with code page CP_NONE.
87
88 13. DBInformation: Support for fb_info_pages_used and fb_info_pages_free added, plus
89 test suite updated.
90
91 14. DBInformation: Support for fb_info_crypt_key (Firebird 3.0.3 onwards) added as
92 a string type, and fb_info_conn_flags (Firebird 3.0.3 onwards) added as an integer type.
93
94 15. Service Manager: List of protocols supported expanded to include inet, wnet and xnet.
95 An overloaded version of IIFirebirdAPI.GetServiceManager also allows a non
96 default connection port to be specified.
97
98 FBINTF Change Log version (1.1-0) Sun, 07 Jan 2018 15:20:02 +0000
99
100 1. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Numeric types.
101 Scale is no longer ignored.
102
103 2. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Date values
104 not in locale format but which are recognised by Firebird. Date values that
105 cannot be converted to a string using Pascal library are now passed through
106 to Firebird as Text Strings.
107
108 3. Lookup character set name by codepage amended to ensure that CP_UTF8 returns
109 UTF8 and not UNICODE_FSS.
110
111 4. Charset ID problem. When using Firebird 3, with no default database character set
112 and a column has a non-default collation specified, an incorrect character set
113 id was being reported that could result in a 'division by zero' error when
114 used by IBX. This has now been fixed.
115
116 5. Move GetCharsetName, CharSetID2CodePage, CodePage2CharSetID, CharSetName2CharSetID,
117 CharSetWidth from IFirebirdAPI to IAttachment. This is a better data model as
118 the character sets supported can be updated on a per database basis. That is
119 it is possible to add a (Firebird) user defined character set to a database.
120
121 6. Add RegisterCharSet to IAttachment. This is used to register a user defined character
122 set supported by Firebird with the API.
123
124 7. Add missing isc_info_db_read_only to list of decoded Database Information items
125 in FBOutputBlock.pas and update test suite to include this item.
126
127 8. FB30Client: avoid always using "StartMultiple" when only a single database attachment.
128
129 9. Loading Windows fbclient.dll: when using the FIREBIRD variable to locate the client
130 library or finding it by disk location, the PATH environment variable is now also set to
131 include the FIREBIRD directory. This is to ensure that the correct dlls in the
132 firebird client library dependencies are loaded.
133
134 10. Testsuite: Ensure consistent UTF-8 output on Windows console.
135
136 11. Testsuite: Update Windows script to include FPC 3.0.4 in search path.
137
138 12. FB30Statement: Protect call to "Move" and avoid calling with a nil pointer
139
140 13. FB30Statement: A check has been added to ensure that all SQL Parameters
141 have been given a value (including NULL). Previously, failing to set the
142 value of an SQL Parameter could give rise to unpredictable results or
143 an SQLDA error.
144
145 14. FB30Statement/FB25Statement: Set SQLParam "modified" when string value set.
146
147 15. FBAttachment: Avoid string reference count error when processing an Ansistring
148 parameter in an array of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.
149
150 16. FBAttachment: Allow for WideString and UnicodeString parameters in an array
151 of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.

154 FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-2) Sat, 04 Mar 2017 14:43:56 +0000
155
156 1. Change syntax to Mode Delphi
157
158 2. Change all uses of string type to explicit AnsiString in order to ensure
159 compatibility between Delphi and FPC.
160
161 3. Various syntax changes to ensure Delphi and FPC compilation including GUIDs
162 defined for each interface.
163
164 4. Generics syntax variations for Delphi added
165
166 5. PChar replaced with PByte expect where an actual string is being referenced,
167 where PAnsiChar is used instead.
168
169 6. Review of type definitions in IBExternals to ensure Delphi compatibility
170
171 7. Testsuite updated for Delphi
172
173 FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-1) Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:17:57 +0000
174
175 1. Limit maximum Blob segment read/write to MaxuShort. Avoids data loss with
176 large blobs and the FB3 API.
177
178 2. Update Event Handling algorithm to avoid looping due to recreation of the
179 event block.
180
181 3. Avoid invalid XSQLDA error when the only parameter is updated to null
182
183 4. Array Handling: fix problem with text arrays with character set none. When the
184 DB connection has a default character set (e.g. UTF8), an error is raised by
185 Firebird if the space allocated is not enough to allow for transliteration, even
186 though it is not required for character set none.
187
188 5. IBUtils: List of reserved words brought up-to-date
189
190 6. Add ISQL style performance statistics collection to IStatement
191
192 7. Add IFirebirdAPI.CreateDatabase variant to allow execution of user provided
193 CREATE DATABASE statement.
194
195 8. Update SQL Statement parsing to allow for Array Dimensions. That is so that the ':' in
196 an array dimension is not mistaken for a named parameter prefix.
197
198 9. Trim function no longer applied to result of GetAsString for SQL_TEXT
199 when Character set is octets. Avoids loss of non printable characters at start of string.
200
201 10. Add function GetPerfStatistics to IStatement. This returns ISQL like performance
202 statistics for the last action. Requires use of procedure IStatement.EnableStatistics
203 to enable stats gathering.
204
205 11. API Version information added as constants to IB.pas
206
207 12. BlobMetaData character set id should now be the same as that given by IColumnMetaData.GetCharSetID
208
209 13. Firebird Character set "NONE" now interpreted as codepage CP_ACP.
210
