[tdf-discuss] Re: LO Base Enhancements

Nigel Verity wrote
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. The details can be found in the related bug

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:

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.
