This section describes how to download and install Java DB (Derby) 10.2.2 - free for evaluation.

Java DB is a relational database management system that is based on the Java programming language and SQL. Java DB is a commercial release of the Apache Software Foundation's (ASF) open source relational database project. But you can still download a copy of Java DB free for evaluation. The Apache project is called Derby.

  • Go to http://developers.sun.com/javadb/, the Java DB home page.
  • Cick the Downloads tab.
  • Click the Download link next to Java DB 10.2.2.
  • Click the Download link.
  • Register yourself.
  • Check the checkbox to accept the terms
  • Click "Windows self-extracting file" next to English - javadb-10_2_2_0-windows.exe 9.71 MB to start download Java DB.
  • Save the download file, javadb-10_2_2_0-windows.exe to \local
  • Double click \local\javadb-10_2_2_0-windows.exe to start unpacking the Java DB.
