.NET Driver for Firebird

The .NET Data provider is written in C# and provides a high-performance, native implementation of the Firebird API.

Latest version (4.2.0.0): Firebird V2.5.2 has support for creating backups and streaming these back to client via the Services API. This release focuses mostly on implementing this feature.

In FirebirdSql.Data.Services you can find two new classes called FbStreamingBackup and FbStreamingRestore. These work mostly as FbBackup and FbRestore you only need to set a valid stream (like FileStream or MemoryStream) into OutputStream or InnerStream respectively. The rest is same as if you were using fbsvcmgr.
