You can connect to Android-based Firebird 3 using IBDAC. Support for Andriod-based Firebird is added to IBDAC 6.1.3 as of 19-Sep-17.
You can use the client library provided with Firebird 3 distribution for Android: https://www.firebirdsql.org/en/firebird-3-0/#Android

You should deploy the Firebird 3 client library together with your application. For more information on this topic, please visit: http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudi ... ying_Files
Before connecting to the server, you should set the correct value in the TIBCConnection.ClientLibrary property. For example:

Code: Select all

IBCConnection.ClientLibrary: = TPath.Combine (TPath.GetDocumentsPath, 'libfbclient.so.3.0.3');
Note, to test this functionality, you can use our Mobile demo project. The project is located in the 'Demos\Mobile' folder relatively to the IBDAC demos installation path.
