Using native DBMS API requires including the appropriate DBMS API header file (comes with SQLAPI++). Native DBMS methods are accessible just after SQLAPI++ database connection is initialized. The sample below shows how to create Firebird database with SQLAPI++ using native Firebird isc_dsql_execute_immediate call:

#include <SQLAPI.h>
#include <ibAPI.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
    SAConnection con;
    ibAPI *pibAPI = (ibAPI *)con.NativeAPI();
    ISC_STATUS status_vector[20];
    isc_db_handle db_handle = NULL;
    isc_tr_handle dummy_handle = NULL;
        "create database 'localhost:c:/test.gdb' user 'SYSDBA' password 'masterkey'",
    if (status_vector[0] == 1 && status_vector[1])
        /* Process error. */
        return 1;
    return 0;
