Don't worry about it, any question about how to use Derby (and more) is welcome 
on this list! I was not certain about the answer myself, and for some reason I 
guess I was thinking you may already have tried it.

If your database is read-only, I guess you could put your database in a jar 
(your application jar file) and the wrap the jar in an exe file.

You can read about putting the DB in a jar in the Derby Developer's Guide, 
within the section "Creating Derby databases for read-only use".

There may also be some "java-to-exe" tools that can do that sort of thing for 
you, I don't know. You said you were using exe4j, but if you want to look around 
  for more such tools this article may be helpful:
