What is employee.fdb - an alias or a file? If that's a file, why don't you
use the absolute path to it? What are the file permissions on that file?

Also you can try to use instead of localhost.

Now another question - what exactly do you want to test with OpenOffice?
That you can connect via Jaybird? Or is your project based on OpenOffice

Did you check the files that are posted in that thread? Alternatively you
can use one of our examples, they should work as well.
