Using the Local Inter Base Server

The Local InterBase Server (LIBS) is a version of the Borland InterBase server that runs on Windows 3.1. It provides all of the features of a SQL server for local, single-user operation. For more information on the Local Interbase Server, see the Local InterBase Server User's Guide. The Local Interbase Server can be used in primarily two ways for client/server development:

  • As a local environment for developing a client/server application, regardless of the server to be used.
  • As an intermediate step in upsizing, between the desktop and server, providing a local SQL engine for development of SQL-specific features. For more information on upsizing, see "Upsizing" on page 140.
  • As a local database engine for deployment of standalone desktop SQL applications.
