No, there should not be any differences between the contents of the .tar.gz 
distribution and the .zip distribution. I think you have found a bug in the 
documentation, because install.html does not really exist (correct me if I'm wrong).

I think this part of Developer's Guide needs to be updated and rephrased. I'm 
not sure what the manual page you refer to means by "Derby development 
environment". I would think it means the Derby jar files, Java executables, 
paths and classpaths, etc. In a different context it would mean the environment 
needed for developing Derby itself, though.

For more info on how to get started with Derby, see
