I feel that making Sqlite the default database for LO Base in place of HSQLDB would free resources for more development of the front-end.
This is just FYI. SQLite was considered as a HSQLDB replacement and rejected, mainly for the reason indicated up thread by Terrence Enger i.e., dynamic (advisory) data typing.

I would urge you to take a look at Gambas3 to see how easy it is to develop a database application with it.
I thought I read recently (in a forum post?) a suggestion to use Gambas as a replacement for LO Basic, but cannot find it now. I notice that there is some recent activity about porting Gambas to MacOS: http://sourceforge.net/p/gambas/mailman/message/32413651/ It would need to be ported to both MacOS and Windows (currently runs under Cygwin) to be an effective cross-platform Base application development tool. ----- Best wishes, Owen. -- View this message in context: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/LO-Base-Enhancements-tp4117041p4118587.html Sent from the Discuss mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- To unsubscribe e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.documentfoundation.org/www/discuss/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
