I'm almost thinking of installing something like MySQL and writing my own
front-end in Java.
I'm sorry if I'm being slow, or not following the conversation properly (lots going
on here at the moment), but, if you're thinking like that, what's wrong with Base?
The things you'd need to do, Base does.
The things that approach won't get you, something to present your data, you'd
use Writer/Calc for.
The two problems I've registered (which have a multitude of subsidiaries, I know,
I'm not trying to say Base is great yet, it's clearly not), is that the whole thing
crashes, the answer is use a back end not the embedded system, and the wizards
are cr*p, building your own front end to (eg) MySQL won't help you there.
Andreas' approach of writing queries and setting up Writer documents to use them
does what you want, doesn't it?
Writing documentation for this approach would be a good idea to broadcase these
One teeny-tiny step for mankind, apparently...
