Subject RE: questions about Base---do we need an embedded DB?
Date Fri, 05 Apr 2013 19:18:31 GMT
Good point.  

So even if there were a replacement, there would need to be legacy interop.  

That's probably an interesting challenge to avoid with Base.

So, we're back to the previously unanswered problem with regard to support of HSQLDB and rotting
bits (and version-specific Java dependencies) in Base.

We can't really change the embedded DB, only add a new implementation -
compatibility with previous ODB files needs to be kept for a long long time.
