A few of us had started a RDBMS as part of the Avalon-apps project.  It 
is suspended for the mo while we concentrate on sexier things (EOB and 
others) but we will come back to it.  What it offered that some others 
did not :

1) Full interface / impl separated design for Table Row etc.
2) Avalon-Phoenix using in that blocks (components)
3) JDBC compatible with JDK 1.3 & 1.4
4) Multiple implementations of all blocks  - e.g. ->
  - non persisting store & file system persisting store
  - Where-clause processors using Rhino or BCEL for real strongly typed 
rows and queries.
5) SQL support plus (insane as it seems) LXSQL (an xmlized form of SQL 
for parsing without yacc)
6) Multiple transports between client and server (one using AltRMI), 
SOAP transport would be easy (Glue).

It is not an OODBMS though.  It is called AvalonDB not ApacheDB as it is 
not sancioned as a sub-project officially.
