InterBase ODBC Driver on GitHub

ib odbcdriver

Embarcadero just released the source code of the most recent version of the ODBC driver for the InterBase relational database.
This is an open source driver which has been available for long, but it’s the first time it is officially hosted in a public repository, at:


The source code includes recent fixes to add support for catalog/tables selection using Microsoft Power BI and multi-platform build enablement (Linux 64bit, macOS ARM64). The driver, in fact, can be compiled for three different platforms: Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Notice that the driver source code is licensed under the original InterBase Initial Developer’s PUBLIC LICENSE.

In perspective, this work goes along the JDBC driver for Java, the ADO.NET driver for C#, and the Python Driver. All together, and in additional to the native RAD Studio connectivity, these drivers enable creating applications backed by InterBase in many different language and development environments.
