If you add a source on event, note on source is displayed on narrative web report. So, where should narrative display the source which is a part of a note ? Note can be attached on multiple objects (person, family, events, address, source reference, etc ...)

OpenOffice database ? You need java and not modular, isn't it ?
I will rather use gramps-connect ... ;)
If you just need to have or sort a list of sources, then you can try common gramps' feature for exporting screen into a spreadsheet :
Note, Julio used OpenOffice form for managing sources :
I should still have a sample on my local mailing archives.
Personally, I thought there were too many dependencies and "manual work" ! So I used an existing feature for a migration into a collection manager : Tellico
It was OK, but very experimental (two years ago, previous DTD, not relational : images <=> sources <=> repositories, etc ...)
So Finaly, I have tried to keep a scheme on source seizure into Gramps (Note, I have two different schemes into two different databases !)
Now, I manage sources like a "waterfall" or a "reversed tree" !
Top is Repository, that's why I used a third party report :
I suppose I should also be able to add sourceref (which could be related to multiple objects)
I would also like to see something "properly coded" for managing sources ! I know that I used the quicker way to get something which needs more code... If someone find a better way, I will stop to keep alive this gramps-addons (3rd party plugins) !
I hope something could help you !
