It won't be any different from any other database. You connect to the  
database via JDBC API (DataSource or DriverManager) and go from  
there. Derby advantage is that you have an embedded mode, so on the  
low end, you won't have to run a separate server process.

Since you asked for an example, here goes a self-plug:


Cayenne PetStore contains Derby preconfigured to use the embedded  
mode, so the DB creation and initial data load happen automatically  
when the web app starts.
