Bullshit. There are plenty of cross-platform RDBMSes that are not
implemented in this grotesque proprietary abomination that Java is.

My comment, or Sun's decision ?
How many of those cross-platform RDBMs were :

- available in 2004 (when the decision was made to upgrade the OOo1 Base
iteration to something new) ?

- didn't require masses of developer investment time and resources to
integrate into the codebase ?

- ran on OSX, Windows and Linux ?

- weren't Java based ?

- could be made to run in a single file and be portable across various
OSes ?

Personally, I always regretted the demise of the way database
functionality was set up in OOo1.
