Actually it is mentioned:

"The Derby network server increases the reach of the Derby database 
engine by providing traditional client server functionality. The network 
server allows clients to connect over TCP/IP using the standard DRDA 
protocol. The network server allows the Derby engine to support 
networked JDBC, ODBC/CLI, Perl and PHP"

But perhaps this section needs to be revisited as while someone could 
write a  ODBC/CLI, Perl and PHP client, there is not one currently 
offered by anyone.  Also we don't have a client section. I think that 
the important thing is to carefully  document our variations so the 
protocol is clear to whomever may want to write a new client.
