Develop Apache Derby applications in Eclipse
2005-01-27 Java 4 Comments
We all know what Apache is, and you tell us what Eclipse is, but what’s Derby?
Derby is a very very nice embedded java database engine, open sourced by IBM, that became Apache Derby. I think it uses the same JDBC drivers as DB2, and possibly the same SQL “dialect” so that it’s easy (and expensive) to scale your application if it is ever needed. Out of the embedded java databases it is my favourite, but it has been open sourced not so long ago, so most projects have startded with using other embedded databases…
I believe the servers at school we use for assignments (in a database class) are DB2. Is there any way I could use this server to do these assignments at home? How about copying over the database files?
If I could get this working I can guarantee there be about 100 (the size of the class) additional users by the end of the week. heh.
