FDB is a Python library package that implements Python Database API 2.0-compliant support for the open source relational database Firebird ®.

  • 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
