[vox-tech] hsqldb

Many of you have probably used HSQLDB without realizing it. 
OpenOffice uses it!

Here is some info on HSQLDB. A lot of tutorials for Java use HSQLDB, but
you can use HSQLDB with PERL too. You can start an HSQLDB server with a
single command. The following will start a database with called EMPLOYEE.

java -cp <path to>/hsqldb.jar org.hsqldb.Server -database.0 file:db/employee -dbname.0 EMPLOYEE

The data for EMPLOYEE will be stored in the sub-directory db.

HSQLDB comes with a nice GUI tool too! 

java -cp <path to>/hsqldb.jar org.hsqldb.util.DatabaseManager -driver org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver -url jdbc:hsqldb:hsql://localhost/empoloyee -user sa

You can download hsqldb from the below site. Thus far, I have used 1.8.0 version. There is a new version,
but I believe it works a bit different. But,... it probably comes with more features.

Here is some documentation using HSQLDB with PERL.

"There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to
make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other
way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies."
