Apache Derby 10.16 API Documentation
Apache Derby is a standards-based, pure-Java relational database engine. Its easy-to-use data manager requires no administration by end users. Derby runs on any JVM at Java version 9 or higher and Derby supports JDBC version 4.3. Derby's platform-independent database format may be copied to any file system.

Information on Derby configurations follows.
Derby's modules may be wired together in several configurations. The modules are:
|The embedded database engine contains Derby's core functionality. It contains its own JDBC driver, allowing one JVM to host both Derby and the applications which use it.
|The network server wraps the database engine, enabling networked JDBC access.
|The remote JDBC client connects to a server across a network.
|Basic tools include a schema dumper and an interactive SQL interpreter.
|Optional tools support metadata introspection and access to other vendors' databases.
|The runner module supports easy command-line administration of Derby installations.
|The commons module contains cross-module support utilities.
|Message localizations support human-readable diagnostics in languages other than English.
|An extensive body of tests stresses functionality in all of the other modules.
The following conventions apply to the module diagrams presented here:
- Derby modules appear in blue.
