Database Connectivity

Contains database pieces, drivers, etc.

dbaccess builds UI on top of this.



For testing, use:

podman pull postgres:latest
podman run --name=postgres -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=foobarbaz -p postgres:latest

In Base, Connect to an existing database, select PostgreSQL:

URL: host= port=5432 dbname=postgres
User: postgres
Password: foobarbaz

podman stop postgres
podman rm postgres

In order to test SCRAM authentication, create the container like this:

podman run --name=postgres -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=foobarbaz -e POSTGRES_INITDB_ARGS=--auth-host=scram-sha-256 -e POSTGRES_HOST_AUTH_METHOD=scram-sha-256 -p postgres:latest


For mysql_test:

podman pull mariadb/server podman run --name=mariadb -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=foobarbaz -p mariadb/server podman exec -it mariadb /bin/bash -c "echo -e CREATE DATABASE test | /usr/bin/mysql -u root" (cd connectivity && make -srj8 CppunitTest_connectivity_mysql_test CONNECTIVITY_TEST_MYSQL_DRIVER="root/foobarbaz@sdbc:mysql:mysqlc:") podman stop mariadb podman rm mariadb


Firebird has two primary file types:

Our embedded FB is used like this: - FBK is extracted from ODB; - Embedded FB extracts the compatible FBK into an incompatible FDB (specific to this version of embedded FB DLL); - FB works with this temporary FDB; - When saving ODB, embedded FB backups the FDB into FBK again, and that is stored inside the ODB.

It, indeed, creates additional performance penalty, but makes the ODB readable by all the future LO versions, no matter what future FB version they embed.
