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.
