The driver class that applications should load for embedded Derby is
org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver. However the actual driver loaded
into the DriverManager by Derby will be Driver20 or Driver30. The
different driver loaded is to support JDBC 2.0 or JDBC 3.0 environments
transparently to the application, namely JDBC 2.0 for JDK 1.3 and JDBC
3.0 for JDK 1.4 and 1.5.

Applications should not acceess the Driver20 or Driver30 classes
directly, the public api is EmbeddedDriver and DriverManager (e.g.

Driver20 and Driver30 do not handle the network URL, only the embedded,
thus they are required in derby.jar.
