Embedded Derby JDBC driver

The Derby driver class name for the embedded environment is org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver.

In a Java application running on JDK 1.5 or lower, you typically load the driver with the static Class.forName method or with the jdbc.drivers system property. If your application runs on JDK 1.6 or higher, then you do not need to explicitly load the EmbeddedDriver. In that environment, the driver loads automatically.

For detailed information about loading the Derby JDBC driver, see "java.sql.Driver" in the Derby Reference Manual.
