All views appreciated!
Of course you can not access cloud content without internet access. This
office suite is a most conservative *desktop* application and Base is
NOT a database program. Just like MS Access it lets you connect to
various types of databases so you can access your data in this office
suite. The whole thing does not know anything about a so called "cloud".
No, the *embedded* HSQLDB is not an option. It is even much worse than
the JET database embedded in MS Access.
A stand-alone HSQLDB server may be a very good database solution if it
fits your needs. You can run the same tiny Java program on all platforms
as server, as client and in cached mode. But again, all this has nothing
to do with any cloud computing. It just works with client-server
connections or with plain single-user file access. If you are able to
backup your files, the medium should not matter.
If you need to access the same database from various places, it is about
nothing but database servers.
