When multiple applications connect to Derby over the network, they are running in a client/server environment. Derby runs embedded in a server framework that allows multiple network connections. (The framework itself starts up an instance of Derby and is running in an embedded environment. However, the client applications are not in the embedded environment. See the Derby Server and Administration Guide for more information on how to run Derby on a server.
It is also possible to embed Derby in any Java server framework.
