Hi David,
Thanks - it sounds like the version you will be coming up with is another good
way to show how well Derby integrates into numerous environments.  I'll be interested 
in seeing  your app, paper / article, etc., if you end up sharing it.

Great stuff, Susan!  I've been working on a very similar version, but 
I'm trying out DWR (http://getahead.ltd.uk/dwr) instead of using XML. 
It's a much easier programming model (IMHO) and only adds 185K to the 
total download size.

I'm also trying to use Java Persistence instead of JDBC, but that's much 
more heavyweight.  It again really simplifies the programming, but it 
adds another 2MB to the total download size (I'm getting the 
implementation from Glassfish).  I could use Pack200 to make that 
smaller, but still, that's a heavy chunk of change.

Good to know about XMLSERIALIZE, I didn't know about that!
