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 Derby–and 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 it–and how to build robust business applications and Web services with it, one step at a time.

Coverage includes

  • 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® workstations–with 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.
