Download and install PostgreSQL ODBC software. We tested with version 11 of this software in Unicode mode, but other versions may also work. In Windows, go to ODBC Data Source Administrator (via Administrative Tools, Data Source (ODBC) or ODBC DataSource in different versions of Windows) and click on Add to add a PostgreSQL data source. Download p7zip for Linux (Posix) (x86 binaries and source code): p7zip at SourceForge p7zip is the command line version of 7-Zip for Linux / Unix, made by an independent developer. (Optional) Install additional JDBC drivers. If you intend to connect to commercial databases (e.g., Oracle, MS SQL Server or IBM DB2), you must provide the appropriate JDBC drivers. To install a driver, copy the jar file to the following folder: portofino-4.x.x apache-tomcat-7.x.x lib.

HSQLDB is a relational database management system implemented in pure Java. You can easily embed this database to your application using JDBC. Or you can use the operations separately.


Follow the prerequisite software installations for HSQLDB.

Verify Java Installation

Since HSQLDB is a relational database management system implemented in pure Java, you must install JDK (Java Development Kit) software before installing HSQLDB. If you already have JDK installation in your system, then try the following command to verify the Java version.

If JDK is successfully installed in your system, you will get the following output.


If you don’t have JDK installed in your system, then visit the following link to Install JDK.

HSQLDB Installation

Following are the steps to install HSQLDB.

Step 1 − Download HSQLDB bundle

Download the latest version of HSQLDB database from the following link Once you click the link, you will get the following screenshot.

Click HSQLDB and the download will start immediately. Finally, you will get the zip file named

Step 2 − Extract the HSQLDB zip file

Extract the zip file and place it into the C: directory. After extraction, you will get a file structure as shown in the following screenshot.

Step 3 − Create a default database

There is no default database for HSQLDB, therefore, you need to create a database for HSQLDB. Let us create a properties file named which defines a new database named demodb. Take a look at the following database server properties.

Place this file into HSQLDB home directory that is C:hsqldb- 2.3.4hsqldb.

Now execute the following command on command prompt.


After execution of the above command, you will receive the server status as shown in the following screenshot.

Later, you will get to find the following folder structure of the hsqldb directory in the HSQLDB home directory that is C:hsqldb-2.3.4hsqldb. Those files are temp file, lck file, log file, properties file, and script file of demodb database created by HSQLDB database server.

Step 4 − Start the database server

Once you are done creating a database, you have to start the database by using the following command.

After execution of the above command, you get the following status.

Now, you can open the database home screen that is runManagerSwing.bat from C:hsqldb-2.3.4hsqldbbin location. This bat file will open the GUI file for HSQLDB database. Before that it will ask you for database settings through a dialog box. Take a look at the following screenshot. In this dialog box, enter the Setting Name, URL as shown above and click Ok.

You will get the GUI screen of HSQLDB database as shown in the following screenshot.

These advanced steps are primarily for system administrators and people who are familiar with the command line. You don't need a bootable installer to upgrade macOS or reinstall macOS, but it can be useful when you want to install it on multiple computers without having to download the installer each time.

What you need to create a bootable installer

  • A USB flash drive or other secondary volume formatted as Mac OS Extended, with at least 14 GB of available storage
  • A downloaded installer for macOS Big Sur, Catalina, Mojave, High Sierra or El Capitan

Download macOS

  • Download: macOS Big Sur, macOS Catalina, macOS Mojave or macOS High Sierra
    These will be downloaded to your Applications folder as an app called Install macOS [version name]. If the installer opens after download, quit it without continuing the installation. To get the correct installer, download from a Mac that is using macOS Sierra 10.12.5 or later, or El Capitan 10.11.6. For enterprise administrators, please download from Apple, not a locally hosted software update server.
  • Download: OS X El Capitan
    This will be downloaded as a disk image called InstallMacOSX.dmg. On a Mac that is compatible with El Capitan, open the disk image and run the installer within, which has the name InstallMacOSX.pkg. It installs an app named Install OS X El Capitan into your Applications folder. You will create the bootable installer from this app, not from the disk image or .pkg installer.

Use the 'createinstallmedia' command in Terminal

  1. Connect the USB flash drive or other volume that you're using for the bootable installer.
  2. Open Terminal, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.
  3. Type or paste one of the following commands in Terminal. These assume that the installer is in your Applications folder and MyVolume is the name of the USB flash drive or other volume you're using. If it has a different name, replace MyVolume in these commands with the name of your volume.

Big Sur:*



High Sierra:*

El Capitan:

* If your Mac is using macOS Sierra or earlier, include the --applicationpath argument and installer path, similar to the way this was done in the command for El Capitan.

After typing the command:

  1. Press Return to enter the command.
  2. When prompted, type your administrator password and press Return again. Terminal doesn't show any characters as you type your password.
  3. When prompted, type Y to confirm that you want to erase the volume, then press Return. Terminal displays the progress as the volume is being erased.
  4. After the volume has been erased, you may see an alert stating that Terminal would like to access files on a removable volume. Click OK to allow the copy to proceed.
  5. When Terminal says it's finished, the volume will have the same name as the installer you downloaded, such as Install macOS Big Sur. You can now quit Terminal and eject the volume.

Use the bootable installer

Determine whether you're using a Mac with Apple silicon, then follow the appropriate steps:

Apple silicon

  1. Plug the bootable installer into a Mac that is connected to the Internet and compatible with the version of macOS you're installing.
  2. Turn on your Mac and continue to hold the power button until you see the startup options window, which shows your bootable volumes.
  3. Select the volume containing the bootable installer, then click Continue.
  4. When the macOS installer opens, follow the onscreen instructions.

Intel processor

  1. Plug the bootable installer into a Mac that is connected to the Internet and compatible with the version of macOS you're installing.
  2. Press and hold the Option (Alt) ⌥ key immediately after turning on or restarting your Mac.
  3. Release the Option key when you see a dark screen displaying your bootable volumes.
  4. Select the volume containing the bootable installer. Then click the up arrow or press Return.
    If you can't start up from the bootable installer, make sure the External Boot setting in Startup Security Utility has been set to allow booting from external media.
  5. Choose your language, if prompted.
  6. Select Install macOS (or Install OS X) from the Utilities window, then click Continue and follow the onscreen instructions.

A bootable installer doesn't download macOS from the Internet, but it does require an Internet connection to get firmware and other information specific to the Mac model.

For information about the createinstallmedia command and the arguments you can use with it, make sure the macOS installer is in your Applications folder, then enter the appropriate path in Terminal:
