I haven't looked at HypersonicSQL - yet - but I did spend a little time
browsing the Jetty site yesterday.  It definately looks very promising.  I
also found some references to using EmbeddedTomcat so that tomcat could be
embedded within another application - which could make sense as well.

I agree in principal, that is why I mentioned that moving the program files
to the hard-drive generally becomes a more important requirement than the
"you are not allowed to install software on the client" requirement.  The
issue of licensing is still a concern that we will need to investigate.
