Hi :)
Phew! :)  Thanks Dan.  So Postgresql and the rest should be fine too [crosses fingers].  It's good 
to know i haven't misunderstood or just got it wrong.  
Thanks and regards from
Tom :)

     You are right: because Base holds all the data in memory until shutdown, embedded HSQLDB  
databases can loss data if shutdown is not done correctly. MySQL keeps the data stored within its 
installed folder. Base connects to the MySQL server which accesses the data. The same thing is 
true for you favorite MySQL replacement (Mariadb).

Dan, does that data-loss happen when you use MySql?  I thought it only happened with the embedded

    As far as Base is concerned, I have not been having
                any problems with 3.4.6, 3.5.6, nor 3.6.2. (I just
                installed which is a release candidate. For my
                personal databases I use the most, I use MySQL as the
                backend with any of these LO Base versions as the front
                end. I work with Base for my writing. This
                database is embedded and contains only sample data (no
                important data contained in it). As far as JRE, I use
                1.6.0_24 (openjdk). LO seems to prefer this.
    I also use AOO 3.4.1 at times. It seems to prefer
                the Openjdk 1.7.0_07.
    The main problem with Base is the potential for data
                loss when the program is not shutdown properly. This can
                be avoided by extracting the data from the database file
                and then use Base to connect to the data. (The data
                files are extracted to a separate folder.)
                Unfortunately, it does not improve the speed of Base.

Unfortunately you add that "it is how you imagine
                it works"!

Would it be possible that you check that with the
                board or the devs themselves and then confirm it to us?
If I were you I definitely would like to be sure
                about the proceedings - (a) if such really has been
                settled or  (b) if not settled?

Some posts ago I asked what version is for the time
                being considered the most reliable, especially regarding
-- and what version of JRE is in that version
                needed for Base (if anymore needed)?
I have read the release notes and got an picture
                but what is your opinion?
My version now is LibO3.4.6 on Win7Pro/32 and

Hi :)
The upgrade from 3.5.x to 3.5.7 is extremely
                unlikely to cause problems.  That 3rd digit is roughly
                like a "Service Pack" number, but divide it by 2 because
                MS only does 3 SPs whereas LO does 6 or 7.

The 3.x.7 aims at avoiding introducing new
                features!  New features are mostly in the 3.6.x or being
                lined-up for the 3.7.0.  The 3.5.7 is likely to just
                have fixes for any lingering problems in the 3.5.6. 
                Most of those fixes will be being merging into the 3.6.3
                and .4.  At least that's how i imagine it works. 
                Certainly once that 3rd digit reaches .4 the branch
                seems a lot  more stable.

BRAVO Anne-Ology!!
Exactly that message - only in
                other words -- I have repeatedly tried to
tell to the LibO-experts (devs)
                since January:
they must take a brake in
                developing and take a certain version (e.g.
3.4.xx) and make every module of
                the suite - Base included - absolutely
free of bugs and inconsistencies
                both in programming and the instructions
and especially the LibO-Help.
Every feature shall have a clear
                explanation and a detailed guiding
how-to in the LibO-Help -- easily
                understood by any average non-expert

I cannot agree more.
I started with 3.5.4 a few month ago
                and saw some problems disappearing in
    3.5.5 and 3.5.6. Currently I am
                hesitating to upgrade to 3.5.7.
I hope the dev-team listens to Pertti's
