I'd also like to know if Hypersonic has both client/server and standalone
functionality. For client/server operation I guess it would need a JDBC
driver. Is one available for it?

Finally, does it have tools for admin and query?

Subject: Derby vs. Hypersonic SQL

supporting other database engines too. After studying the options on the
Java DB engine implementations, it seems that there are two important
contenders: Apache Derby and Hypersonic SQL. While our feeling is that
Hypersonic SQL is a more mature product, Derby seems to be hyped about a lot
these days and it also has quite some history since the days of Informix and

Could you please help in our decision by pointing out some advantages and
shortcomings of Apache Derby versus Hypersonic SQL?
