Related question:  If you want to connect to a Derby instance using 
something other than Java (C, Python Perl etc), what's the recommended 
mechanism?  Google suggests the DB2 driver, but most of the articles and 
howto's are several years old, and date back to the Cloudscape days.

I've been using Derby very happily for the development stage of my 
project, but I'm probably going to have to switch to MySQL unless I can 
get decent connectivity to Derby from other languages, in particular 
from scripting languages.
