    Call External Application


    Hello All,

    I've been searching and haven't found much information on calling external applications from Firebird. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

    I need to call an external program when a specific record is saved to the database. I plan to use a trigger to call a stored procedure which can gather the data I need to send to this external application.

    I need to take this data, format it and make a web services call to another application.

    So does Firebird support making calls to external applications?

    I believe I can do what I need with something like an extended stored procedure supported in MSSQL, but I can't use SQL Server here.

    Any Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Use Firebird Events and build delphi app to listen for events, so that app can execute any app you want.
