Subject Adobe to include Apache Derby in ColdFusion 8 (aka Scorpio)
Date Tue, 29 May 2007 01:05:28 GMT
Apache Derby is an open source relational database implemented entirely in
Java - it has a tiny footprint (2MB or so), includes an embedded JDBC
driver, and supports both simple local access as well as client-server type
access.

So what does this have to do with ColdFusion? Well, Jason Delmore (Senior
Product Manager - ColdFusion) mentioned this in passing at cf:Objective (and
few picked up on it), but we plan to include Apache Derby in ColdFusion
Scorpio <http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Scorpio>. The practical
implication of this is that if you have to distribute an app that needs a
database, you'll now have one that will work consistently on all platforms
(no more having to tinker with different databases on different platforms).
