the output of the diff command is xml, so it's DBMS independent.

I have pre-built XSLTs to transform that XML output to SQL specific for Oracle 
and Postgres. It shouldn't be too difficult to create a Derby XSLT.
Most probably the Postgres XSLT already covers 80% anyway because Postgres is 
pretty close to ANSI SQL anyway.

So something like:

WbSchemaDiff -referenceProfile='Version7' -targetProfile='Version8'

will probably already give you a pretty usable SQL script.

You can contact me offline (using the support email on my homepage) if you need 
adjustments to the XSLT. I don't mind adding a Derby specific XSLT.
