Hi Yeradis -
 From the number of responses you have gotten I'd say the people on this 
list are your best bet for getting 'Derby for Dummies' type 
information.  I wrote a pretty basic article introducing Derby last year 
- it is available on-line at:  
http://www.linux-mag.com/content/view/2134/  -- let me know if this is 
You need to register to view the article but there were no fees the last 
time I looked.

Also, as Rajesh mentioned, take a look at the preliminary drafts of Ch 1 
and Ch 2 of Working With Derby [WWD] - it is intended to get people 
using Derby as quickly as possible.  It can be downloaded with this 

Please let me know how these sections could be made more helpful.  WWD 
is still a work in progress and I would greatly appreciate you sharing 
your opinions with me.  NOTE:  The examples in WWD use syntax that is 
currently only available in the Derby development trunk (syntax added 
for version 10.2).  Most the syntax should be supported in the *Version 
10.2 alpha snapshot.  *Let me know if you need help converting this to 
version 10.1 syntax.

Lastly,  I am very interested in know more about your comment:     " 
derby is killing me :-p ; "
The 'killing me' experience is exactly what I want to help avoid with 
the WWD document.
