Thanks, no doubt you're correct as I admittedly did not research adoption of
HSQLDB  further.  And that predates my use of OpenOffice. Was fighting with
Sybase and Oracle products, while avoiding MS Access.

Interesting history none the less :-)

To keep the record straight, Stardivision's StarOffice did not use 
HSQLDB.  Unless the name has been changed, Stardivision used the ADABASE 
D database engine in their StarOffice.  As far as I can research, Sun 
dropped the proprietary Adabase D engine in favor of HSQLDB after it 
took over the StarOffice code from Stardivision.  I never was able to 
get Adabase D working for me back then, but I was ignorant of real 
(non-Access) databases then and the StarOffice Adabase D database 
documentation was terrible.
