Interbase Connection Help

The preferred way for connecting to InterBase with RazorSQL is via JDBC. It is also possible to connect to InterBase via ODBC with RazorSQL. See below for information on both of these connection methods.

Connecting to InterBase via JDBC

RazorSQL does not ship with the Interbase JDBC drivers. To get connected to InterBase, the JDBC drivers must first be obtained. The JDBC driver is included with the Interbase installation in a file called interclient.jar. For the latest versions of InterBase, this file is in the SDK/lib directory.

Once the JDBC driver is obtained, users can connect to Interbase by launching the connection wizard and selecting InterBase as the database type and JDBC (InterBase JDBC Driver) as the connection type. Click the browse button to the location of the interclient.jar file and enter any login information and the host or ip address of the server, the port the server is listening on, and the database name.

Manual InterBase JDBC Information

If manually configuring your connection, see the following for JDBC driver class and JDBC URL format. Manual JDBC Information

Connecting to InterBase via ODBC

To get connected with ODBC, the InterBase ODBC driver must be installed on your machine, and an ODBC datasource for InterBase must be configured on the user's machine prior to connecting. For more information on setting up ODBC datasources, see the following:

ODBC Setup

Once the ODBC driver is installed and an ODBC datasource is configured, open the connection wizard, select InterBase as the database type, ODBC as the connection type, and select the name of the ODBC datasource you configured to make an ODBC connection to InterBase.
