Hi Siegfried,

This is a bit confusing. Sun decided to distribute Apache Derby and  
call it JavaDB. The bits you download from the JavaDB site and the  
bits you get already installed when you install Sun's Java SE 6 JDK  
and the bits you can download from the Apache Derby site are the same  
(modulo release levels and documentation). [Also, Sun will offer  
support for the JavaDB bits but not the Apache Derby bits.]

more below.

If you're happy with the Apache Derby installation then there is no  
need to install or use the JavaDB either from download or from Java
