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) ?

I'm not surprised you didn't find anything on Mac OSX: Adabas D support is
only enabled on Windows NT and its descendants, Linux, Solaris Sparc and

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
perhaps the adabas stuff is just obsolete ?

This is what I'm trying to find out; the hardcoded list of platforms where
it is enabled doesn't make sense.

I'll have a word on the developpers channel; if nobody uses it anymore, I
don't see why we couldn't disable Adabas D support everywhere.
