Master Apache Derby: the only open source, pure Java™, fully transactional, small-footprint RDBMS
Apache Derby is the world's only enterprise class open source, pure Java, fully transactional relational database. It's small enough to be embedded directly into your Java applications, providing a local data store that requires no DBA support. Powerful enough to support a wide range of traditional applications, this database ships as the default database for WebSphere Application Server and more than fifty other IBM software products. Apache Derby is built on the mature IBM Cloudscape code base IBM recently contributed to the open source community. The IBM Cloudscape code was nominated and won Developer.com's Product of the Year 2005 award.
Now, IBM's own database experts have written a comprehensive guide to making the most of Apache Derbyand its commercial counterpart, IBM Cloudscape in any development or production environment. This book systematically introduces the Apache Derby/IBM Cloudscape technology: where it fits and how to install and configure itand how to build robust business applications and Web services with it, one step at a time.
Comparing Apache Derby with the commercial IBM Cloudscape offering
Deploying Apache Derby/IBM Cloudscape to support development and production environments, client/server environments, multi-threaded applications, and Web servers
Integrating Apache Derby/IBM Cloudscape into a completely open source development environment
Specific instruction on installing Apache Derby/IBM Cloudscape on Windows® and Linux® workstationswith tips on how to install the code on any platform that has a supported JVM
Understanding how programming languages interact with Apache Derby/IBM Cloudscape
Building complete sample applications step-by-step in JDBC, Windows (ODBC and .NET), PHP, Perl, and Python
Managing and securing Apache Derby/IBM Cloudscape databases
Writing SQL code for creating, retrieving, and updating data
Troubleshooting installations, databases, and applications
This book has a companion Web site that contains links to the IBM version of Apache Derby and other downloadable code, documentation, articles, and other resources to give the reader a deeper understanding of some of the features available in Apache Derby.

aggressive promotion of Derby,
This review is from: Apache Derby -- Off to the Races: Includes Details of IBM Cloudscape (Hardcover)Apache Derby is a very promising package that is being freely offered, as both source code and binaries. This book is an aggressive promotion of its virtues. The authors stress many things about Derby, or its IBM sidekick, Cloudscape.
Derby addresses a persistent need amongst many Java programmers for an easy to use SQL database. Often, a Java programmer has only cursory expertise in coding for a full database like IBM's DB2 or Oracle. Best usage of these often requires you to be a DBA.
By contrast, Derby comes as a Java JAR file, and can be plonked into your programming environment just as any other JAR file. The book explains in depth how to then interact with Derby, at the level of your Java source code. You can see that you get a pretty powerful engine. Including features like stored procedures and user defined functions, that let you optimise for speed.
Speaking of speed, that is perhaps the biggest possible drawback of Derby. It is run as Java... Read more

A Must-Have for Derby Users,
This review is from: Apache Derby -- Off to the Races: Includes Details of IBM Cloudscape (Hardcover)The definitely guide to Derby. This offers much more explanation and information than the online documentation provided by Apache. But what do you expect... it comes from the minds at IBM themselves.
However, unlike most of IBM's publications and documentation, this is actually readable and informative. You don't have to wade through a series of unknowns and missing pieces of the puzzle in order to figure out what IBM was trying to actually get at.
This will not only help you define and work with Apache Derby, but also make your applications lighter, faster and easier to deploy.
