Fyracle 0.8.9 for Linux released


- Added support for stored functions & procedures
in other languages than PL/SQL
- Added plugin for Java stored functions & procedures
- Added support for external C stored functions

Support for external stored procedures has been
contributed by Eugeney Putilin, Vlad Horsun and
Roman Rokytskyy.


The installers are available through the Janus
Software website and ftp servers. See:
for the free runtime & developer demo
and see:
for the full developer version.


The recommended upgrade procedure is to first
uninstall any previous versions of Fyracle and only
then to install the new 0.8.9 release. Remember
to save your configuration files (firebird.conf
and aliases.conf) if you changed them!

The uninstaller has a start menu entry on Windows
and can be found at the top of the install
directory on Linux and Windows.

If you want to use the new Java stored procedures,
please review your java configuration file (jvm.conf)
after installation. The first non-comment line should
contain a path to your java virtual machine (

On Linux, getting to a working JVM install is not so
easy: several shared libraries much be reachable via
the library search path.


An updated version of Compiere will be available soon.
A dotnet/mono plugin is actively being developed.
