In version 1.8 the property textdb.allow_full_path, which by default is false, could be set in the server.properties file.
But in version 2.2 it is no more possible because it became a system property.
The command :
java -Dtextdb.allow_full_path=true -cp \hsqldb.jar org.hsqldb.Server has no effect.
How to set this property in HSQLDB 2.2 ?
Thanks for reporting. Will be fixed in the next snapshot jar (http://hsqldb.org/support)
Fixed in the latest 2.2.9 snapshot.
This doesn't seem to be fixed in the final 2.2.9 version.
I still have the same issue, 2.2.4 works fine.
