Me again,

In the past, some versions of StarOffice were bundled with a limited
freeware version of the Adabas database engine.

The Adabas support is still present in LibreOffice; howewer, I'm not sure
if it is still used or if the free (as in beer) Adabas version is still
available somewhere.

I would like to know if some people still use it, and on which platforms.

I've just checked on Mac OSX and Adabas is not in the list of available
db engines to which a user can connect. So, I can only assume that the
only current way to do this in LibreOffice would be via macros or some
other scripting language (if that) ?

Additionally, the community edition of Adabas is only available for
Windows Vista and 7 users, I just went over to Software AG's website and

However, looking at the code in the adabas directory in my git repo
shows that it could be used as an example for people wanting to develop
their own C++ driver implementation for other similar db engines
(Firebird anyone ?) I know currently that you can find some stuff in
skeleton, but since the mysql connector was implemented, the word from
OOo devs was to use the mysql stuff as an example - perhaps the adabas
stuff is just obsolete ?
