    Overview

    Apache Derby, an Apache DB subproject, is an open source relational database implemented entirely in Java and available under the Apache License, Version 2.0. Some key advantages include:

    • Derby has a small footprint -- about 2.6 megabytes for the base engine and embedded JDBC driver.
    • Derby is based on the Java, JDBC, and SQL standards.
    • Derby provides an embedded JDBC driver that lets you embed Derby in any Java-based solution.
    • Derby also supports the more familiar client/server mode with the Derby Network Client JDBC driver and Derby Network Server.
    • Derby is easy to install, deploy, and use.

    Java DB is a relational database management system (RDBMS). Data is stored and queried via SQL or JDBC. Like other RDBMSs, Java DB can also be accessed through a persistence layer such as JPA, Hibernate, or JDO. Java objects can be stored in the columns of Java DB tables.
