I think the point Mark was making was to switch away from using the
embedded back-end to pretty much any external one. Which is what
you often suggest too.
Can HSQLDB be used as an external engine? I thought not, which is why I didn't
One small step for mankind...
Download the latest version.
Put it somewhere in your libraries (no installation required).
Point your office Java to the extracted hsqldb.jar.
Extract ./database/ from your embedded database somewhere to your files.
Rename your database files with a common "dbname." prefix.
Connect a new Base document using JDBC with an URL like this one (refer
to the downloaded documentation in your libs):
Copy over the queries, forms and reports from your embedded thing.
You get the latest version of a full featured HSQLDB without
restrictions, many more functions, the access control and safety you
would expect from a database application.
You can write a configuration file to run a server for concurrent access.
- Embedded HSQL requires another Java config. I use OOo for embedded and
LibO 3.3.4 for "normal" access.
- Base can not handle user defined row filters with HSQLDB2. I use my
own "power filters" anyway.
