what is the difference between cloudscape and derby?

P: n/a
Hello
I downloaded cloudscape 10.0 from sourceforge. There is also the database
derby available for download from the Apache incubator. Is there a
difference between these two products? Are there any differences in
features, license, functionality or performance?

I think (?) Cloudscape is now the "branded" version of Derby.
A bit like Suse Linux compared to the Linux kernel.

Well the Linux kernel is a tarball that you can download from kernel.org.
Suse linux (which I'm using for 6 years) is a distro that has the linux
kernel compiled for many hardware architectures, the GNU software, KDE,
Gnome, Mysql, PostgreSQL, Derby (in the 9.3 version which will be out next
week), Apache, Bind, Samba, Openoffice, Yast, Xen (again with the new
version), Eclipse, 2 dvds and 1000 pages of printed documentation.
I am asking:
ARE THERE FEATURES in Cloudscape which aren't in Derby?
Do both Cloudscape and Derby have the same license?
Are both of them the same?

Hi Ioannis,

I do not have first hand knowledge of the differences, but you may be
(somewhat) interested in this developerworks interview of Jon Prial
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerwork.../dm-0410prial/

Unfortunately, the interview is from Oct. 14, 2004.

Where the question came up:
Q: What's the difference between the open source and IBM commercial
version?

Good luck,

Tom
