(That page is gone, try this link instead: [] )

The embedded databse engine (HSQLDB) requires java, but if you're just using Base to connect to an external database such as MySQL or PostgreSQL, no java is required.

I believe that java is not included in the default download:

  • Many users don't need java
  • It's difficult to make sure users have the right version of java to install

This question looks related:

Side Note: There was a push to remove the java dependency in Base by changing the default built-in database from HSQLDB -> SQLite. Due to technical limitations in SQLite, this change was abandoned.
