Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: Java dependency


+5 too.

What about supporting more languages for extensions instead? Lua seems
interesting, there are other languages that couldbe supported too.

I think LibO should be completely functional with all the features
without the use of heavy dependencies like JVM.

Also I think LibO should concentrate on being a lot more resource
efficient without losing functionalities. This way slower machines
will be able to run it like netbooks, mobile devices and specially
those using ARM.

Regards.

+4 on making Java optional. Personally, I prefer Python for writing

legal uncertainty. Do we / Can we have the option of making LibO
extensions in Python?

That would mean: ship a different database with by default,

would still need that backend otherwise you'd introduce a major incompatibility with previous 
versions.

Doesn't Base have its own independent database engine.  Something that
is not part of OOo/LibO?  If so, then a connector for it would be all
that is required to retain the ability to use databases created for it.

I don't really see a chance for base unless you want to duplicate base.

Base as the front end could be rewritten.

(Yes, I personally do like java, and I'd not create a code-heavy extension in any other 
language without a good reason)

Keep the ability for extensions to be written in Java.
