What installed OpenBase?

I opened my system preferences today and noticed there was something called OpenBase. I clicked on it and OpenBase Security opened up. I'm not familiar with this and did a find on my Mac to see if there was an OpenBase application. I found OpenBaseManager and OpenBaseSetup. I didn't download this directly so it must have installed with something else I've installed. Anyone know what commonly uses this?

I'm just curious.

We use a voicemail system at work called Phone Valet that installed Open Base.

I has to do with SQL databases, that's what I got from a google search. I know nothing about it though.

Open Office or maybe NeoOffice? The database in OpenOffice is called simply 'Base'

Various applications use it as a database backend, including StickyBrain, Daylite, and, as mentioned, Phone Valet. It's also installed when you install Developer WebObjects.

You can remove OpenBase using a one-line Terminal command:

Thanks. I may have installed it with Daylite, which I tested out some time back.
