[GRASS-user] dbase driver in grass7

Thanks for the replies.
db.connect would do what I want, but I think my issue is a bit more tricky.
Actually, I use GRASS7 as a backend for some WPS processes, and as it seems
to me: every WPS process creates a temporary workspace. I may be able to
run v.db.connect via WPS, but it would have effect on a vector map (which
is also temporary), so it has nothing to do with the next process I want to
The reason I wish to use dbf driver instead of SQLite is the following:
There's a package called Geo-MHYDAS, which had a module m.definput [1].
This module gives the error message: ERROR: Sorry, but only dbf driver
So that is why I want to find an "universal" solution.
Any thoughts?
