Sorry All

I'm running PClinuxOS (latest) and LO and MySQL 5.1.55

A MySQL 'expert' was telling me recently that HSQL is only meant to be a prototyping utility and should *NEVER* be used for any "proper" work - - interesting!!??

I can confirm that when it crashes it takes everything with it so you have to backup every time you make change. This is what forced me to MySQL.

Thanks again


I do not know if HSQL is only intended for prototyping and thus is not suitable for production work. I would say as a MySQL/MariaDB user is that HSQL is probably intended for lighter production work where a small office needs a database. In this scenario the data requirements are modest, maybe a couple GB of data, but their data is complex enough to need the querying features of a relational database.
