Bill Todd comes to the only conclusion: "FIBPlus is a great choice if you're going to work with InterBase and/or Firebird. The components let you easily use all the features of both databases in your applications. The option to use separate transactions for reading and updating data is particularly valuable with InterBase 7.1, because it lets you keep datasets open for any length of time without worrying about performance degradation caused by long-running transactions. FIBPlus makes using array fields easy by treating them as variant arrays. Macros make modifying SQL statements in code easy. And the ability to sort a result set in memory without having to re-execute the query lets you provide flexible views of data with minimum network traffic and server load. FIBPlus will make your InterBase and Firebird development easier than ever before..."

Bill Todd comes to the only conclusion
During a re-write of a very large software system we were having some difficulties utilizing a 3rd party grid that we had chosen. The dataset connectivity was very flaky due to the complex joins and updates we were using which caused the grids to behave very sketchy. FIBPlus was the perfect solution for us. After implementing it everything became so much easier. The grid functionality stabilized, data retrieval was much faster, and we were pleasantly surprised by many of the unique features of your components. We were especially impressed with your pFIBUpdateObject components which allowed us to very easily update the multiple tables we were using in our joins. Many thanks for your great components.>>
