Entityconnection & Firebird

Post by michaschumann » Tue 22 Dec 2015 10:30

I just bought Entitydac for redesigning a huge VCL application (already using UniDac) to ORM and Firemonkey. I don't know how to connect to firebird as it always searches for gds32.dll. Of course I can rename the lib but I am sure there is a way like in UniDac to supply dll and also port in the connection string. I found one in the forum for IBDac but connection attempts complain about unknown parameter "Client Library":

DB.ConnectionString :=
'Data Provider=UNIDAC;SQL Dialect=Firebird;Data Source=localhost;' +
'User ID=sysdba;Password=masterkey;Client Library=fbclient.dll;" +

UPDATE: Works like a charm if I omit "Client Library" parameter. Port parameter works. For any reason it did not work by filling out the connection form in the IDE.

You should also specify the provider name in the connection string, in your case -

Code: Select all

and add the InterBaseUniProvider module.
