The real issue is the "publish as a standalone" for those that do not
use LibreOffice. The question I would ask then is: can you create a DB
in LibreOffice Base that would work with MS Access? Since "standalone"
databases is something that most people do not write anymore. I use to
have to write main frame database applications, but that was a different
environment now. Most people "require" their users to use MS for PC
based databases. For network/browser based ones, MySQL seems to be used
with the various script languages supported within the server/browser
"system". For a "standalone" option, I have not heard of anyoe doing
that for a long time.
It is still a frequently asked question on the web-forums oooforum.org
Access can do it.
Base looks like the equivalent to Access just like Writer to WinWord.
Base must be capable doing it.
The architecture is a 3rd-party Java backend (HSQLDB), a 3rd-party
report engine (Pentaho in the report builder extension) and a platform
independent office suite with regular office documents as carriers of
forms and reports. The portable document is a zip archive bundling
configuration, binary backend and text documents (forms&reports).
This does not compare to a monolithic executable binary file bound to
one particular platform of the very same vendor.
