Description bryancole 2007-01-06 21:58:48 UTC
One of the criticisms of OOo-Base, in comparison with MS-Access, is that the
integrated hsqldb storage engine is only suitable for single-user work (whereas
Access support multi-user databases, albeit through direct file access). Since
OOo already ships with the hsqldb.jar included, this contains the hsqldb server.
If the package set included a small application (with menu
launcher) to launch instances of the hsqldb server (as a service on Windows, or
daemon on *nix), this would be a wonderful way of providing SOHO users with a
multi-user networked RDBMS system (avoiding the hassle of setting up and
administrating MySQL/Postgresql etc.). Furthermore, OOo offers the most features
with hsql so this is a good match (MySQL lacks relationships and the postgresql
drivers are sub-par).

good enhancement. A first stage could be the adequat documentation to start a HSQLDB v1.8 server using the hsqldb.jar delivered with AOO, and then to connect AOO Base with it. However, the issue 55029 should be fully fixed to allow acceptance of such architecture.
