I am trying to build a simple interface app for a user.  With 35 years
experience in software development, I can tell you:

1.  It is customary to password protect a database to prevent unauthorized

2.  It is customary for applications that validate a user to have the
password embedded in the program so that each user doesn't have to know the
DB password.

You can store the password in the database document but the GUI does not
offer this option. The database document is zipped XML with no
encryption. If you save the user's database password in the document,
anybody with a zip tool and editor can read it.

That is what I am trying to do with Base.  (Also, I see no relationship
between your link and my question.)

As a professional with 35 years experience in software development you
should be able to read. If you had one drink too many, the screenshot
indicates clearly that my tool can store the log-in flag, the user name
and the passord (together with jdbc:hsqldb: connection parameters).

If you have any problem with code written by hobbyists, you may be
satisfied with this reference:

which should help you to write your own code storing a password in a
database document.
