1. How robust are embedded Base files created by the GUI?

With an "embedded" database, any bug in the application (doesn't
even have to crash) can corrupt your data.

With a client-server database, it's essentially impossible for the
client to corrupt the data.

2. If they are not that reliable, what is the LO Base procedure to
create a split database?


3. Anything else I need to know?

Use a client-server RDBMS.

PostgreSQL is legendary for its reliability and the SDBC driver comes
with LO.

Personally I wouldn't trust a database (MySQL and its descendents) whose
original developers didn't even consider it necessary to enforce
foreign key constraints.
