Apache Derby For Mac Publisher's description
Pure Java relational database engine using standard SQL and JDBC as its APIs
Apache Derby, an Apache DB subproject, is an open source relational database implemented entirely in Java.
Some key advantages include:
В· Derby has a small footprint -- about 2 megabytes for the base engine and embedded JDBC driver.
В· Derby is based on the Java, JDBC, and SQL standards.
В· Derby provides an embedded JDBC driver that lets you embed Derby in any Java-based solution.
В· Derby also supports the more familiar client/server mode with the Derby Network Server and Derby Network Client JDBC driver.
В· Derby is easy to install, deploy, and use.
What's New in This Release:В· JDBC 4.1 - Derby's JDBC drivers support the new Java 7 methods on the java.sql and javax.sql interfaces. This support works with the pre-GA OpenJDK 7 build 131 available at http://download.java.net/jdk7/ on March 3, 2011. Derby's implementation of these interfaces may change in a future release in the highly unlikely event that the actual GA version of these interfaces changes.
В· Automatic calculation of index statistics - Derby automatically refreshes statistics to help it pick better query plans.
В· Improved interrupt handling - Interrupting connection threads no longer crashes the Derby engine.
В· MAX optimization - On indexed tables, MAX queries run faster in more cases.
В· XML operator portability - The xmlparse and xmlserialize operators work out-of-the-box on more platforms.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
