Agreed - but I am really not in favor of the hsql script call.
This call has to happen at runtime not build time :-/

AFAIK - yes

So I propose just to split the cocoodb.script into a standard
sql and a hsqldb specific init script. Then let ant merge them
and put them into WEB-INF/db whenever the database block is included.

I don't think it's too bad to have the database block copy that
tiny sql file into WEB-INF/db even if no hsqldb is installed.

We can solve this later with the block dependencies...

We could link to a documentation page from the samples where we
describe how to setup the database examples to work with other
datebases. Then we don't have the hassle with the sql compatibility
and the users should also be fine.
