using fb 2.5 and 3.0 embedded concurrently

Ralf Jansen

Hi,

 

I’m in the process of migrating a large .Net application that is using firebird embedded 2.5 to 3.0. To get a smooth transition with a minimum of user hassle and downtime it would be helpful to have both client libraries (2.5 and 3.0) used concurrently in the same process.

There are presumably dozens of databases used by the process and I would like to migrate them one by one while the other databases keep running either via the 2.5 client or the 3.0 client library.

 

Should that work? Can both libraries coexist? Can the Net. Provider cope with that scenario?

I think yes. Just use the ClientLibrary and point it to correct DLLs.

Seems to work in a short test.
I will go that route further and see if there are some major stumbling blocks in the way (the provider's connection pooling for example).
