Embedding Apache Derby in Mozilla Firefox to run as a local storage and cache for web applications.
This demo showcases Java DB (based on Apache Derby) running embedded within a web browser.
This Web application demonstrates how an embedded database can be used to persist data from a tax return being created either online or offline. The application can be deployed manually or automatically using Sun's Java Plug-in with installing the application as a Java Extension.
Apache Derby will run embedded within the browser and act as a local storage and cache for this last one.
You can now get all the information about the demo embedding JavaDB within a web browser, which was shown at ApacheCon 05'.
Direct link to the demo information page can be found at http://developers.sun.com/prodtech/javadb/overview/product_tour/index.jsp .
The minimal requirement for the demo is to install Sun's Java plug-in extension for the web browser. This demo does not run on Apple Mac OS X yet (work in progress).
