4.57. hsqldb

Updated hsqldb packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
HSQLDB is a relational database engine written in Java, with a JDBC driver, supporting a subset of ANSI-92 SQL. It offers a small (about 100k), fast database engine which offers both in-memory and disk-based tables. Embedded and server modes are available. Additionally, it includes tools such as a minimal web server, in-memory query and management tools (which can be run as applets or servlets), and a number of demonstration examples.
The HSQLDB database did not depend on java packages of version 1:1.6.0 or later, which caused the hsqldb packages to be installed incorrectly in some cases. Consequently, the build-classpath command did not work on systems without the java-1.6.0-openjdk package installed. This update modifies the hsqldb spec file to add a requirement for java-1.6.0-openjdk, and the installation of hsqldb now proceeds correctly as expected.
All users of hsqldb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
