If multiple instances of your application want to have read-only
embedded access to the same data, why not just make a copy of the
actual database and include the copy as part of each instance of
the application?

You could physically embed the database into your application, by
packaging it as a jar in your classpath, or you could do this by
having an installation procedure which installs a separate copy of
the database for each installed copy of the application.
