No it is not true. You can run replication in the embedded mode also.

I am worried about what you mean by up to date here. You see replication 
in derby is
asynchronous, we only promise transaction consistency. You can read some 
more on replication
in derby here


You can replicate an existing embedded database following the steps 
listed here. You will find
the combination of the documentation in derby and this wiki 
comprehensive, feel free to raise
any doubts you have.
