    Default Kettle and LibreOffice Base

    Hello, is it possible to use Kettle to access a database created with LibreOffice (file with .odb extension)?

    I think LibreOffice Base uses Hypersonic (HSQLDB). So I tried to make a database connection using Hypersonic connection type and Native (JDBC).

    I left the fields Host Name, Port Number, User Name and Password blank. And in the Database Name field I put the path to the .odb file.

    The connection seems to work OK, but in the end it doesn't show any table (only metadata).

    Usually these OO files are zip files themselves. Did you try to look into it?
    There should be a database folder, the HSQLDB files are probably located in there.

    I unzipped the file and tried to view the tables in the database connection explorer and could not make it work.

    I will use SQLite as local database instead, it seems to be much more easier to setup.
