i must strongly confirm your vision.
We must see Base as a connector and a front end for any possible
We have 100 users, using LO as a front end to a MySQL server without
any problems to use the MySQL data in Writer and Calc.
The front end itself is writen with LO basic mainly using Dialogs to
view the data and to feed the server with new and modified data.

External is the one and only way to go. The embedded HSQL 1.8 simply
does not work well enough. There are far too many reports of total data

You can connect MySQL via ODBC, JDBC and the SDBC driver built into the
I prefer external HSQL 2.3 via JDBC because the office frontend is
tailored around HSQL, because HSQL 2 converts formerly embedded HSQL 1.8
on the fly and because any connection to an external HSQLDB requires
only one file hsqldb.jar anywhere on the system. In server mode it takes
this file plus self made start/stop scripts and a backup script.
I just opened my oldest HSQL 2 database running in server mode on a
Windows machine, accessed during 12 hours a day by means of Writer forms
and Calc reports from 7 client machines. The first record is of
2011-Apr-28. This database never caused lost a single byte of data. Of
course we run nightly backups anyway.
