Not sure I understand what the problem is...
Did you build Derby from source? In a binary distribution, or if you 
build it yourself and follow all the instructions in BUILDING.txt, derby.jar is 
compiled with both j2sdk 1.4.2 and JDK 6, and will work on both 1.4.2, 1.5.0 and 
1.6.0, as well as Java ME.

I'm not familiar with how install4j works, but merely copying derby.jar from one 
location to another should work on all platforms, barring any user or file 
permission issues on your end.
