FDB is a Python library package that implements Python Database API 2.0-compliant support for the open source relational database Firebird ®. In addition to the minimal feature set of the standard Python DB API, FDB also exposes the entire native (old-style) client API of the database engine. Notably:

  • Automatic data conversion from strings on input.
  • Automatic input/output conversions of textual data between UNICODE and database character sets.
  • Support for prepared SQL statements.
  • Multiple independent transactions per single connection.
  • All transaction parameters that Firebird supports, including table access specifications.
  • Distributed transactions.
  • Firebird BLOB support, including support for stream BLOBs.
  • Support for Firebird Events.
  • Support for Firebird ARRAY data type.
  • Support for all Firebird Services

FDB also contains extensive collection of submodules that simplify various Firebird-related tasks. Notably:

  • Database schema
  • Firebird monitoring tables
  • Parsing Firebird trace & audit logs
  • Parsing Firebird server log
  • Parsing Firebird gstat utility output
