If the normal Base file is not reliable, why do we have it in the first place?

Either we (the community) must make it reliable, or we should abandon it and come with a reliable 
Not reliable is in fact not very acceptable. The documentation should describe when to use, and 
when not to use base. Simply generalizing in the FACs is not the right way to go, I think.

Base is a very useful and versatile tool which deserves much attention.
So, abandoning it would be a very bad idea, if you ask me. Dunno about
the current developments (wrt FireBird embedding) but I do like Base for
many uses:
-- HSQL embedded mode: demo-ing, modelling, personal DBs, front-end to
Calc spreadsheets or even text files
-- HSQL file mode: everything else (professional single-user or
multi-user DBs). In this situation, Base is a good front-end that could
become excellent, if the devs where to focus on that (I've got no
information here).

The main question is "how to switch from embedded mode to file mode?"
which I had a hard time figuring out. Fortunately, the web is you friend ;)
