Question: I have to work with images. So I am planning to store them in a BLOB field. But I am afraid about the size of the transmission. What is the best way to work with BLOBs?

Answer: In FIBPlus version 4.8.1 (and upwards) we implemented local BLOB-filter mechanism. It enables you to pack images before sending them to a database and unpack them when getting them from the database. This process is transparent for your application. You can also see a BLOB-filter example and read an article about BLOBs

Our 911 dispatch center needed a program to monitor the status of equipment used in emergency situations. If one dispatcher modified the status of a piece of equipment, all the other dispatchers needed to see this change immediately. The most elegant way to implement this was by using Firebird Events to asynchronously notify all the users whenever a pertinent change had occurred at the database server. After failing to implement this myself using the Firebird API, I bought a copy of FIBPlus. I dropped a Database, EventAlert and ErrorHandler control into a C++ Builder DataModule and within minutes I had all the functionality I needed. I was able to complete the project quickly and the users are thrilled with the results because I gave them more features than they originally asked for. >>
