OPEN OFFICE BASE WITH HSQLDB

Just like Microsoft Access, the Open Office BASE offers a “pass-through” interface to connect to other RDBMSs, but it also includes an SQL engine of its own based upon open source Hyper Structured Query Language Database (HSQLDB) embedded with the application.

The latter capability is described in Appendix A of this book in conjunction with installing the Library sample database.
