OpenOffice 2.0 chooses HSQLDB as embedded database

Hi all,

Have a look at this web page: 
http://dba.openoffice.org/miscellaneous/dba20.html

As far as I can see are all arguments used to choose HSQLDB are also 
applicable to McKoi.
However McKoi is not even mentioned as an option.
Does someone know why this is ?
Can we push McKoi in OpenOffice 2.0 ?

Re: OpenOffice 2.0 chooses HSQLDB as embedded database


Maybe the restrictions of the GPL license has an impact?

Does BLOB field affect performance ?

Does a BLOB field in a record affect response time, even if the BLOB field is 
null ?

I am pondering about adding a BLOB field to a record for future use.
If however there is a significant performance issue, I may add an additional 
table to store the BLOB field.
The record in that table is read only of I know that the BLOB field is 
present.

John,

This may be licensing issues, or it may be that they simply are not 
aware of Mckoi.  Does anyone know what license OpenOffice Base is 
distributed under?  I am going to send an email to them and suggest they 
consider Mckoi.

Toby.

Re: Does BLOB field affect performance ?

It does somewhat depend on what you do, but a BLOB field does not 
significantly reduce performance for SELECT operations.  If you have a 
table such as;

   CREATE TABLE a_table ( a INTEGER, b INTEGER, c INTEGER, d BLOB );

And your query is;

   SELECT a, b, c FROM a_table;

It will be exactly the same performance regardless of whether you have 
BLOB column 'd' defined or not.  Creating a table just to store BLOB 
data is not necessary.

Please have a look here : http://www.openoffice.org/FAQs/faq-licensing.html
=>
Which licenses does the OpenOffice.org project use? 

OpenOffice.org uses a dual license strategy for the source code. These 
licenses are the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) and the Sun 
Industry Standards Source License (SISSL). OpenOffice.org also uses the 
Public Documentation License (PDL) for modifiable documentation that will not 
be included in any final product but will be of service to users. Please see 
the section below on that license for more information.
=>

There is more information online.

The LGPL license does not require the product in which the LGPL code is used 
to be made public, while GLP requires the code to be made public.
However does using mckoidb.jar mean that the client must be made available as 
GPL ?
I don't think so.
From my point of view does GPL mean that any changes made to the original code 
must be made public.
However using the GPL code as a library does not make my code GPL.

Your interpretation of the GPL is not correct: 
http://www.fsf.org/licenses/lgpl-java.html

Only Toby and Diehl and Associates know their intent in licensing, and 
they can certainly provide an alternate license to users with OO 2.0. 
However, it seems pretty clear that the OO team cannot integrate/ship OO 
with McKoi as long as they can only procure/provide McKoi under the GPL. 
If you want to integrate McKoi with your application *and distribute it* 
then your application must be GPL as well.

Nothing stops an *end user* from using McKoi with OO (they can integrate 
but not distribute), and OO can provide documentation on how to do that; 
they just can't distribute McKoi themselves.

At least that's my understanding. IANAL.

RE: OpenOffice 2.0 chooses HSQLDB as embedded database

Luigi is correct; there was a long thread on this on /. Sometime back
[http://developers.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/07/17/2257224]

Brad Kuhn's update: "LGPL's S. 6 allows you to make new works that link with
the LGPL'ed code, and license them any way you see fit. Only the LGPL'ed
code itself must remain Free. Such 'client code' can even be proprietary; it
need not be LGPL'ed."

With McKoi's (GPL) license, however, client code becomes GPLed too.

My code is mine, you can't have it.

Re: OpenOffice 2.0 chooses HSQLDB as embedded database

Toby,

Can you please confirm the intentions you or Diehl have with regard to the GPL 
licensing ?
Until now it looked to me I could use McKoi as a database in a non GPL 
product ?
