You can also embed the network server in your application, either using
code or just setting a single property. This then allows remote access
over tcp/ip to your database, while you application continues to access
Derby via the embedded driver.

The clients access derby using the client driver, either using JDBC or ij.

For the picture look at pages/slides 53 & 54 of this:

No issues. You may want to select your own tcp/ip port for the network
server rather than using the default.
