Base To-Do

From Apache OpenOffice Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Below is a list of Base-related projects which could be implemented by interested developers. Most of these projects are relatively self-contained, and do not require too much knowledge about OOo's code infrastructure.

Note that the actual project descriptions are not yet moved to this place here, they still reside one of the project's static pages. Your'e encourage to visit this page, as it contains much more information currently.

(So if you want, one of the To-Dos of our project is to move the To-Dos from http://dba.openoffice.org/development/projects.html to this Wiki page.)

Embed Derby into OpenOffice.org databases

OpenOffice.org Base features an abstract mechanism to embed database backend files into OOo databases (.odb). Currently, this is implemented for HSQLDB, which is used as OOo's default database engine.

To allow this feature for other engines, one must:

  • virtualize the engine's file access, so that it re-routes all its file operations through an abstract API.
  • implement this API on the OOo Base side

The project is to do those implementations for Apache Derby database.

  • required skills Java, C++
  • useful skills: OOo's database access API, OOo's component technology (UNO)
  • Contact: mailto:dev@dba.openoffice.org
  • effort: 2 months
  • difficulty: high

Discuss Remote Operation Necessity

When File:DerbyToursDB.odb is downloaded it can be used only when saved for local access. I have not tried the external application editing option. HCPotter 09:00, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
