OpenOffice.org Base - Database Drivers

There are several database drivers available which enable you to access certain database types which OpenOffice.org does not have native support for. Those drivers are not (yet) part of the "official" OpenOffice.org distributions, but hosted here. If you like bleeding edge technology, download the driver if your choice, try it out, and give feedback to the author or in our development mailing list!

Note that not even the authors of the drivers would, usually, call the current versions "production quality", so the least thing you should have is a good backup.smile

PostgreSQL
The postgresql SDBC Driver allows to use the postgresql database from OpenOffice.org without any other wrapper layer such as odbc or jdbc.
Linux MDB
This driver (which is in development) uses the MDBTools to provide (read) access to Microsoft Access files to Linux users of OpenOffice.org.
SQLite
This SDBC driver (currently in alpha state) is dedicated to giving OpenOffice.org native access to SQLite databases.
