The DB2 JDBC Universal Driver will be available for free download and
use from IBM's Developerworks. The Derby resources page will contain the
link, currently it states the driver is only available by downloading
the IBM Cloudscape 10 tech preview/beta.

http://incubator.apache.org/derby/derby_resources.html

The standalone download will have a licence that enables unlimited use
by Derby users for connections to the Derby network server.

Note that the Derby resources page has some incorrect formatting that
seem to show that RMIJDBC is a suitable driver for the network server.
RMIJDBC is a separate network client/server model for JDBC, and is an
alternative to Derby's network server.
