HSQLDB – Hyper SQL Database

HSQLDB (Hyper SQL Database) is a relational database management system written in Java. It has a JDBC driver and supports a large subset of SQL-92 and SQL:2008 standards.[2] It offers a fast,[3] small (around 1300 kilobytes in version 2.2) database engine which offers both in-memory and disk-based tables. Both embedded and server modes are available for purchase.
Additionally, it includes tools such as a minimal web server, command line and GUI management tools (can be run as applets), and a number of demonstration examples. It can run on Java runtimes from version 1.1 upwards, including free Java runtimes such as Kaffe.
HSQLDB is available under a BSD license. It is used as a database and persistence engine in many open source software projects, such as OpenOffice Base, LibreOffice Base, and the Standalone Roller Demo,[4] as well as in commercial products, such as Mathematica and InstallAnywhere (starting with version 8.0).[5]
