Thank you for clarifications...

I'll be a "better" reader in future mails... Anyway, I think I never got 
in trouble with Derby in my apps (that are, in majority, multi-database 
compatible), and so I try to keed SQL as simple as possible, except some 
(two or three) months ago where I got a non starting database where I 
could not hack to discover where the problem is, neither I got responses 
to my mails on this list, what disappointed a lot :-(. So, I was forced 
to got to comercial databases...

I worked with database as large as 700Mb without problems. The unique 
problem I really find in Derby is lack of some very basic features, like 
renaming columns (even if part of primary/foreign keys), and unblocking 
online backup, both enhancements, not bugs, and both, IMHO, are 
prohibitive for early adoption for large projects/production servers.

Thank you,
