Description yvesc 2004-07-26 22:25:16 UTC
Many OOo users would like to see SQlite to become the main SQL database file
based engine to be embedded with OOo 2.0.

The first step would be to write a SDBC driver for SQLite.

You can find here
further informations.

Anyone who's interested in this feature is requested for voting for this issue
or for bringing help to write this SDBC driver.

thanks for submitting this

confirming as valid feature request (which doesn't yet mean anything about it
being implemented)
correcting priority (see, please)

targeting to "OOo Later" for the moment

SQLite support should be considered as an obviously necessary DB functiunalty. It's a thin 
DB, which is adapted to the office users needs.

I've been using SQLite for some time now and I think it fits the bill here
Of course it does have it's limitations, but if's far from inadequate.
As said earlyer, it lacks many enterprise features but it is the "best on the
market" at the moment for what we, regular SOHO users, need it the most (easy,
no hassle, exchange of lightweight db files).
HSQLDB in my opinnion is not a very good choice since it has runtime dependencies.
Comment 4 davebaileync 2004-11-08 13:42:56 UTC
In my opinion, not having an easy-to-use database has been the single largest
factor to keep many people from switching from MS Office to Open Office. This
would be a big step in the right direction.

This built-in database capability that can be easily ported to other platforms
is a key part of this technology.

Be nice to see this one working. I'm willing to help out with code. I use SQLite
a good bit in my DB programming.
Comment 6 neteler 2009-08-22 00:34:31 UTC
Is there any solution to import SQLite into OpenOffice? I would like to use Calc
on SQLite tables.

You can try to use SQLite ODBC driver (or
even the JDBC one
Comment 8 dipanpatel 2009-10-17 00:28:27 UTC
It is important to have a single point of data accessible by different application 
easily. As the popularity of google gears increases the importance of sqlite as 
this single point of data will become all the more prominent to a point that it 
will be utterly missed by users if unable.
