Comme vous l'avez peut-être vu sur nos réseaux sociaux, Igalia a rejoint
TDF, mais je pense que le détail de leur travail va intéresser ceux qui
râlent après HSQLDB ;)

----extrait des minutes de l'ESC--------------------
Firebird work (from Igalia)
        + Javier - introduction:
                + Free Software hacker, ten years experience, mainly
                  GNOME / gtk+, likes middleware + UI level, fits in
                  many layers.
                + discovering what LibreOffice is about, and where to
        + building a Firebird driver to replace HSQLDB
        + doing work in branch feature/firebird-sdbc
                + to co-ordinate with Andrzej etc.
        + pushed, and works reasonably somewhat
                + prepares statements, makes queries, iterates tables
                + native SDBC driver vs. C API of Firebird 2.5
                + C++ API appears not to be a great choice for now
        + migration issues (Lionel)
                + have you looked at HSQLDB file-format ?
                + can we get rid of the Java dependency, and write an
                  HSQLDB data sucker ?
                + table-structures - just a plain set of SQL statements
                + and a binary blob with the data in it
                + more work to do before importing HSQLDB (Javier)
AI:             + send notes on hsqldb file-format to Ihalia (Michael)
        + issues:
                + avoiding file in temporary directory
                        + hsqldb - situation is that write-to-file java
                          classes are over-ridden, to call directly to
                          zipfile procedures (Lionel)
                        + advantages / disadvantages variously of each
                        + much of file save writes to temporary files
                          anyway, so not a big issue (Michael)
                + C++ vs. plain C, Andrzej - preferred
                  the C++ API, but initial work on C API.
                        + C++ API delayed for around a year
                + discuss in the list.

À bientôt
