Damian,

Yes; there is for RAD (Delphi, C++) apps. The InterBase ToGo library can be embedded in your application on Android. From your Android application, just provide a database URL connecting to the InterBase database on Windows. This will use the IBToGo client library to connect to the remote server's database.

The above solution is only supported for RAD Studio apps with InterBase; no other IDEs or Android development environments.

Best wishes,
Sriram

Thanks Sriram.

This means that I need to develop my app with RAD Studio? This is the only way?

Currently, yes. The binaries necessary to link to your code to work with IB
from Android only ship with RAD Studio.

Thansk Jeff.

Those binaries, can be used from Android Studio?
If no, what other method you can recomend? Web services?

Or may be a third party tool? Like Easysoft JDBC-ODBC Bridge?

Regards.
Damian.
