Description: Using Apache Derby, the Open Source Database Embedded in ColdFusion 8

Come see a preview (about 20-30 minutes) of one of my CFUnited sessions, this one on Apache Derby. No, it's not "new in CF9", but many have missed or dismissed it. In this session, you will learn about the Apache Derby database included in ColdFusion 8. A full-featured database with a ten-year heritage, Apache Derby is fully transactional, easy to use, and standards based and has the advanced features you'd expect in any quality DBMS. Yet it's small, at only 2MB. You'll find out how to use Apache Derby within ColdFusion, as well as about tools that work with it and where to learn more. Again, this is just a preview, but for many it will be more than they've ever heard about the Derby DBMS embedded in CF8. I'm sure some will have preconceived notions about the tool. Come share your thoughts. I hope to dispel a few myths along the way.
