Hi Terry,

Is this the code found at Or
are you referring to a different JDBCPageProvider? Not that I've
been following along on that but I thought that project was
basically stagnant (e.g., last release was March 2007). Mikkel

But good to hear that Derby seems like a good fit otherwise...
given that Janne has started heating up the Priha frying pan
I might try cracking a few eggs. I was originally thinking of
writing a BerkeleyDB JE backend for Priha but a JavaDB one
might be even better, esp. if there'd be no need for Berkeley.
