TechBookReport : Apache Derby Off To The Races
TBR writes "Apache Derby, (AKA IBM Cloudscape, depending on your licensing choices), is a fully featured and open sourced SQL relational database. Coded in Java, Derby can be used as an embedded database engine or as fully networked and multi-user database server. And, less you think that it's just another toy database, it's scalable, rock solid and feature rich. If you're building an application that needs a permanent data store than Derby should definitely be high on your list of contenders."
