 IBM turns database software over to Apache

"In a move to bolster the Java programming language against the increasing popularity of .Net (and open-source Mono), IBM has decided to open source Cloudscape. The Apache Software Foundation, known primarily as the group responsible for maintaining the widely-popular Apache web server, will have control over Cloudscape's intellectual property and licensing rights. To be known as Derby, the application is designed to be integrated and distributed with standalone applications, much like SQLite and Berkely DB, as opposed to a replacement for larger databases such as MySQL, Oracle, or DB2."
