I have hsqldb installed and running. But I don't find the
information that I need to connect Base to it. I have read I can use
either ODBC  or JDBC to do this. JDBC requires: Data source URL  jdbc::
and JDBC driver class. What belongs in these two boxes?
      If ODBC can be used, what goes in the "Name of the ODBC data source
on your system? (I don't even know what they are asking for.)


     Added question: What goes in /tools/options/LibreOffice>Java>Driver>
Class path?

On my system that is:
1) /usr/local/lib/hsqldb/lib/hsqldb.jar
2a) hsqldb:hsql://;default_schema=true
2b) > 

2a) connects to a HSQL server, where a configuration file controls which 
database directory is served under which alias name.

2b) connects to a local development version of the database (cached mode 
analog to the embedded thing). 
/home/andreas/hsqldb_databases/Praxis/hsqldbdata/db0/ contains the 3 
database files chargen.script,,

/usr/local/lib/hsqldb/index.html is the entry point to the excellent 
documentation (313 pages of PDF).

Right - and once the jar has been added into the system you can also
connect to a HSQLdb server running in FILE mode - meaning that the
server will not need to be started before the connection is established,
instead in the connection string you designate the file directory to be
used and as part of establishing the connection it starts an instance of
the server in your process space and uses the directory listed to store
the work files.
