A small database back-end that might be suitable is SQLite. Personally I
prefer MySQL/MariaDB over Postgresql because more third-party
documentation is available and I think Postgresql is heavier.
If you have to have java then the best one seems to be 6u21. If you can get it all working with a
newer version then great but past the 6u24 they seem to cause increasing problems. I was really
hoping that 3.5.x would allow people to use java 7. I didn't realise there was already an 8!! Has
7 already been found to have serious security issues?

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen out there.
I am confused -- can you help me? I recently installed LibreOffice-v3.4.5 after beeing a happy OO-user in many many years. I now
need to make a couple of relational databases (subforms&-reports) and decided to try LibreO's Base. On my main-PC (AMD Athlon II
X3 445, Win7Prof/32bit) the LO's Base caused the program to stop (Write&Calc work OK). I uninstalled LO, removed folders via
WinExplorer, rebooted, installed LOv3.4.5 again and when asked for a new JRE I tried to understand the instructions found and first
installed JRE8 (jre-8-ea-bin-b21-windows-i586-13_jan_2012.exe) and then JRE7 (jre-7u2-windows-i586.exe) and loaded both as
instructed into LO (LO-page: tools/options/LibreOffice/java). Now LO didn't stop but neither of the JREs seem to be sufficient
/"LibreO requires a JRE to perform this task. The selected JRE is defective. Please select and install a new JRE/" and
then "/connection to datasource ("db-name") could not be established -- no Java
installation could be found; check installation/". I did my best several times.
Note. After doing exactly same install process on my laptop (Win7Prem/64bit) the LO(64bit), Base
included, works fine.
Did I do something wrong, wrong versions, is it the 32bit make of LO or the LO-Base itself, is the
JRE(32bit) wrong, -- or what? I like the graphical interface but I don't want to go back to OO and
I don't want to buy a MSAccess, and for my simple needs a MySQL/PHP/Apache seems too heavy to learn.
Thanks in advance.
