Connecting to the Firebird Database Support
In this second article on the Firebird database, Allan shows us how to use triggers in the database to set-up fields that auto-increment (as we saw in the first article Firebird doesn't let you do this straight off - you have to use internal counters called generators).
Moving on from there, Allan introduces us to an open source project (ibWebAdmin) that consist of a set of PHP scripts that allow you to easily administer your Firebird database through a web browser.
Allan comes from Cape Town, South Africa. He has been implicated in writing for several WROX, glasshaus, Wiley and Apress publications, generally in the 'cool stuff that PHP can do' sections.
You can catch up with him at his website http://www.mediafrenzy.co.za.
