Thanks Gary,

I have used dbgui but that has issues too. When I'm sitting at home on the couch using my laptop via wifi on a 192.168 DHCP'd subnet behind my Linux router that is connected to the Internet and working on a Grouper server at work in order to open the dbgui X-windows display on the laptop I would have to put iptables ACCEPT, FORWARDing, and MASCARAEDing rules into my router in order to pop up the window on my laptop.

Doable but not worth the time and effort, there should be a better way.

There is another ant task - 'dbgui' which launches the HSQLDB manager interface - and itself ties up a terminal window. You can issue a shutdown command from here.

As for tying up the terminal I agree it isn't ideal. On the other hand I wouldn't expect to use HSQLDB in a production environment. An alternative method for launching the database was used at a Grouper workshop. I'll look into that and see if it is applicable here.

How is this suppose to be done? I'm using the quickstart, when I do an
"ant db" it ties up my session. it then says connect up to shutdown,
using what to connect?

How does one start this db in daemon mode like any other normal
application like at system boot and not tie up a terminal session? And
then how does the system shut it down at system shutdown? I'm talking
/etc/init.d stuff.

Tying up a terminal session when it's running and having to connect to it
in an unknown way doesn't seem real efficient. Not like the normal
S50hsqldb and K10hsqldb ways.
