Subject Re: Limit on number of rows a table can hold?

Hi, Nurullah.  You say that you spread the database over a bunch of 
machines.  Does that mean you're running multiple Derby instances, each 
embedded into a process running on a different machine?  Or do you have 
one Derby instance that holds a 20gb table?
