In 2017, The Document Foundation (TDF) launched four tenders aimed at improving LibreOffice. Tender four is of interest to the Firebird community:

(4) Tender to implement HSQLDB binary format import in LibreOffice

(https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2017/05/04/tender-implement-hsqldb-binary-format-import-libreoffice-201705-03/)


Collabora will develop a mechanism to import database files with high fidelity from the HSQLDB binary file format, which has been used inside many existing ODB files, by reading the Java serialization code, and writing a filter to import all data into LibreOffice Base. The objective is to remove the legacy Java/HSQLDB database and move to Firebird.


TDF will invest € 29,750.00
