Default Interbase / Firebird

Hi All,

I wonder if you could give me some tips as I am confused. I have recently purchased Delphi XE Starter, which come with Interbase Express components. I have developed Database apps previously using Access and ADO.

I am wanting to develop applications using the components I have before upgrading to the XE professional version and also want to try different things.

What I am struggling to understand is, will it cost me to deploy using an interbase database or does it cost to deploy using the interbase components?

I understand I can design a firebird database and use this with interbase express, but would I need to licence for deployment?

Any comments will be of great help.

Hi Kevin,

I do not have any idea about deploying application with interbase, but deploying application with Firebird database is with no cost (to my limited knowledge).

When you use Firebird as database, then you need to use it using IBO objects components.

Please visit the own site of IBO Objects:

To download IBO object please visit following site:

But, before you deploy your application using IBO obhects, you need to write a mail to its owner "Jason Wharton" and get authorized permission from him (I hope you would get it easily).

That's it.

Let me know if you have any queries.

With Best Regards.

Thanks for the reply. I have just tried to connect to a firebird database with success so all I really need to know off anyone is if I am ok using interbase express components.
