I've taken some time to piece together some Java code to make a proof-of-concept of a full conversion tool for Microsoft Access files. This is so that non-Windows users can easily edit the files, while being able to easily convert back to a .accdb file. The GitHub repository is linked below.
Before I ask anything, I apologize if Off-topic is not the right sub-forum for this question. Programming appears to be Manjaro-specific, and this question seems like it's too broad for Stack Overflow.
First question, I'm not 100% sure if LibreOffice can do this with the Jackcess .jar file outside of Windows (shudders). Is MS Access file editing/conversion possible in non-Windows OS versions of LibreOffice? The documentation on this is lacking, to be put lightly...
According to this answer, LibreOffice does not appear to handle Access files currently. I could be wrong, though!
(Edit: should have realized the above link is referring to OpenOffice, not Libre. I wrote this part late at night. The same still applies for lack of documentation of this feature)
(Edit 2: This part of the question is answered: see below, post 8. TL;DR: it's not possible)
If the answer to this is, in fact, no, my next question involves next steps I should take for this application.
This application is (currently) a Java-based cli program for converting from .accdb files to .txt/.csv, and vice versa.
Second Question: Aside from what's listed in the roadmap in the README I have listed on GitHub, is there any direction I should take this application?
Keep in mind that this is my first publicly available application that I wrote myself (albeit with the help of some third-party libraries), so mistakes will be made. Therefore, anything I need to do for this project that's not specified in the README is fair game.
Quick edit for clarity's sake (this is also in my closing of Question 1) I'm willing to add anything, even if it has nothing to do with my To-Do list! If there's some code comment, FOSS license, anything I need to do legally to ensure that this is a FOSS project, that's (again) fair game.
You can find the GitHub page for the application here. Thanks in advance!
Edit: As with my previous post, I recently discovered showcase, so I've moved this thread there as well.
