$locate sdbc
==> This one (sdbc_hsqldb.jar) looks interesting, let's dig it.

$dpkg -S /usr/lib/openoffice/program/classes/sdbc_hsqldb.jar
openoffice.org-base: /usr/lib/openoffice/program/classes/sdbc_hsqldb.jar

My bet would be that you need libhsqldb-java-gcj to use hsqldb.

Otherwise, follow the advices in README.Debian:
