2
3 1. DARWIN only syntax error: fix missing semi-colon in TFBClientAPI.LoadIBLibrary
4
5 FBINTF Change Log version (1.1-2) Mon, 16 Apr 2018 09:30:32 +0100
6
7 1. Firebird.pas: {$OBJECTCHECKS OFF} added to file to avoid runtime error when
8 program compiled with -CR command line switch.
9
10 2. IServiceManager additions (informational):
11 function getProtocol: TProtocol;
12 function getPortNo: AnsiString;
13
14 3. IServiceManager improved error handling. Interfaces changed:
15 function Start(Request: ISRB; RaiseExceptionOnError: boolean=true): boolean;
16 function Query(SQPB: ISQPB; Request: ISRB; RaiseExceptionOnError: boolean=true) :IServiceQueryResults; overload;
17 function Query(Request: ISRB; RaiseExceptionOnError: boolean=true) :IServiceQueryResults; overload;
18
19 4. IAttachment addition (informational)
20 function GetSecurityDatabase: AnsiString;
21
22 5. IStatement: performance counters now updated after each Fetch. GetPerfStatistics
23 thus now returns accumulated stats for a select statement from opening a cursor
24 up to the last fetch.
25
26 6. DARWIN: uloadlibrary.inc bug fix. Many thanks to Luigi Naimi for correcting
27 the problem.
28
29 7. Type change: "TPerfCounters = array[TPerfStats] of Int64". Note "Int64"
30 replaces deprecated "comp" type.
31
32 10. Testsuite Test10 updated to include thread synchronisation for event reporting.
33
34 11. URL Connection Strings: inet4 and inet6 now recognised.
35
36 12. IBUtils: Parse and Make Connect String now recognise URL style loopback syntax.
37
38 13. IAttachment.CharSetName2CharSetID is now performed case insensitive.

41 FBINTF Change Log version (1.1-1) Tue, 27 Feb 2018 16:51:16 +0000
42
43 1. IBUtils.QuoteIdentifierIfNeeded: Add check for space character.
44
45 2. IAttachment: add two new methods
46 function HasDefaultCharSet: boolean;
47 function GetDefaultCharSetID: integer;
48
49 These return, respectively, true if a connection default character set was
50 specified and the character set id of the connection default character set.
51 The DefaultCharSetID is cached when the connection is opened and hence does not
52 require a database lookup.
53
54 3. Avoid exception when a text blob is a stored procedure parameter.
55
56 4. Update test suite to include a test for a stored proc returning a text blob.
57
58 5. IAttachment: add
59 function GetRemoteProtocol: AnsiString;
60 function GetODSMajorVersion: integer;
61 function GetODSMinorVersion: integer;
62 function GetAuthenticationMethod: AnsiString;
63
64 These results are cached when the connection is opened and hence do not
65 require a database lookup.
66
67 6. IAttachment: add "function GetConnectString: AnsiString;" This returns the
68 connect string used to create/connect to the database.
69
70 7. IAttachment: Create Database using SQL statement. The username and password
71 are now extracted and used to populate a DPB made available via IAttachment.getDPB.
72 It is now possible to use IAttachment disconnect/connect to reconnect to
73 a database for which the initial connection was established by a create
74 database sql statement. Available in FPC only.
75
76 8. Update Test 1 to test 5, 6 and 7 above.
77
78 9. IBUtils code tidy up.
79
80 10. Parameter Block interfaces "find" method. As documented, this should have
81 returned a nil interface when the item could not be found. Instead, an empty
82 interface item was returned. "Find" now works as documented and will return
83 a nil interface if the item cannot be found.
84
85 11. DBInformation: support added for isc_info_active_tran_count and isc_info_creation_date.
86
87 12. DBInformation: New interfaces: IDIRB and IDIRBItem added to support DB Information
88 requests with additional parameters. This is to enable support for fb_info_page_contents
89 (return of page contents). Response to fb_info_page_contents returned as
90 a string with code page CP_NONE.
91
92 13. DBInformation: Support for fb_info_pages_used and fb_info_pages_free added, plus
93 test suite updated.
94
95 14. DBInformation: Support for fb_info_crypt_key (Firebird 3.0.3 onwards) added as
96 a string type, and fb_info_conn_flags (Firebird 3.0.3 onwards) added as an integer type.
97
98 15. Service Manager: List of protocols supported expanded to include inet, wnet and xnet.
99 An overloaded version of IIFirebirdAPI.GetServiceManager also allows a non
100 default connection port to be specified.
101
102 FBINTF Change Log version (1.1-0) Sun, 07 Jan 2018 15:20:02 +0000
103
104 1. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Numeric types.
105 Scale is no longer ignored.
106
107 2. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Date values
108 not in locale format but which are recognised by Firebird. Date values that
109 cannot be converted to a string using Pascal library are now passed through
110 to Firebird as Text Strings.
111
112 3. Lookup character set name by codepage amended to ensure that CP_UTF8 returns
113 UTF8 and not UNICODE_FSS.
114
115 4. Charset ID problem. When using Firebird 3, with no default database character set
116 and a column has a non-default collation specified, an incorrect character set
117 id was being reported that could result in a 'division by zero' error when
118 used by IBX. This has now been fixed.
119
120 5. Move GetCharsetName, CharSetID2CodePage, CodePage2CharSetID, CharSetName2CharSetID,
121 CharSetWidth from IFirebirdAPI to IAttachment. This is a better data model as
122 the character sets supported can be updated on a per database basis. That is
123 it is possible to add a (Firebird) user defined character set to a database.
124
125 6. Add RegisterCharSet to IAttachment. This is used to register a user defined character
126 set supported by Firebird with the API.
127
128 7. Add missing isc_info_db_read_only to list of decoded Database Information items
129 in FBOutputBlock.pas and update test suite to include this item.
130
131 8. FB30Client: avoid always using "StartMultiple" when only a single database attachment.
132
133 9. Loading Windows fbclient.dll: when using the FIREBIRD variable to locate the client
134 library or finding it by disk location, the PATH environment variable is now also set to
135 include the FIREBIRD directory. This is to ensure that the correct dlls in the
136 firebird client library dependencies are loaded.
137
138 10. Testsuite: Ensure consistent UTF-8 output on Windows console.
139
140 11. Testsuite: Update Windows script to include FPC 3.0.4 in search path.
141
142 12. FB30Statement: Protect call to "Move" and avoid calling with a nil pointer
143
144 13. FB30Statement: A check has been added to ensure that all SQL Parameters
145 have been given a value (including NULL). Previously, failing to set the
146 value of an SQL Parameter could give rise to unpredictable results or
147 an SQLDA error.
148
149 14. FB30Statement/FB25Statement: Set SQLParam "modified" when string value set.
150
151 15. FBAttachment: Avoid string reference count error when processing an Ansistring
152 parameter in an array of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.
153
154 16. FBAttachment: Allow for WideString and UnicodeString parameters in an array
155 of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.
156

158 FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-2) Sat, 04 Mar 2017 14:43:56 +0000
159
160 1. Change syntax to Mode Delphi
161
162 2. Change all uses of string type to explicit AnsiString in order to ensure
163 compatibility between Delphi and FPC.
164
165 3. Various syntax changes to ensure Delphi and FPC compilation including GUIDs
166 defined for each interface.
167
168 4. Generics syntax variations for Delphi added
169
170 5. PChar replaced with PByte expect where an actual string is being referenced,
171 where PAnsiChar is used instead.
172
173 6. Review of type definitions in IBExternals to ensure Delphi compatibility
174
175 7. Testsuite updated for Delphi
176
177 FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-1) Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:17:57 +0000
178
179 1. Limit maximum Blob segment read/write to MaxuShort. Avoids data loss with
180 large blobs and the FB3 API.
181
182 2. Update Event Handling algorithm to avoid looping due to recreation of the
183 event block.
184
185 3. Avoid invalid XSQLDA error when the only parameter is updated to null
186
187 4. Array Handling: fix problem with text arrays with character set none. When the
188 DB connection has a default character set (e.g. UTF8), an error is raised by
189 Firebird if the space allocated is not enough to allow for transliteration, even
190 though it is not required for character set none.
191
192 5. IBUtils: List of reserved words brought up-to-date
193
194 6. Add ISQL style performance statistics collection to IStatement
195
196 7. Add IFirebirdAPI.CreateDatabase variant to allow execution of user provided
197 CREATE DATABASE statement.
198
199 8. Update SQL Statement parsing to allow for Array Dimensions. That is so that the ':' in
200 an array dimension is not mistaken for a named parameter prefix.
201
202 9. Trim function no longer applied to result of GetAsString for SQL_TEXT
203 when Character set is octets. Avoids loss of non printable characters at start of string.
204
205 10. Add function GetPerfStatistics to IStatement. This returns ISQL like performance
206 statistics for the last action. Requires use of procedure IStatement.EnableStatistics
207 to enable stats gathering.
208
209 11. API Version information added as constants to IB.pas
210
211 12. BlobMetaData character set id should now be the same as that given by IColumnMetaData.GetCharSetID
212
213 13. Firebird Character set "NONE" now interpreted as codepage CP_ACP.
