I ve just discovered java db. Have I understood correctly, may I distribute an application which makes use of java db, and allow users to use this application without them having to install (or make a connection) to the database?
Is there a limit to the amount of information it can hold. I read somewhere that is is only 2 MB large. is that the limit size?
You do have to distribute the derby.jar of course, but you are allowed to do that. The code itself is just 2MB in size but it can handle much larger databases (I don't know the exact limits, check its documentation).

Yes, you can distribute. Mine is the db folder, java runtime, and .exe jar.
