While the article you mentioned does a nice job of introducing JDBC, the only thing it mentions about installation is:
Java DB, which is available with most Java Development Kit download bundles, Java EE download bundles, or as a separate download, is a robust relational database based on Apache Derby.
I'd like to know why the same JDK installation executable lets you install Java DB on XP, but doesn't give you the option on Windows 7. This isn't about a jar in a classpath, or how to use JDBC, it is about the lack of installation options provided by the same installation executable.
