IBM Cloudscape Referral Page

Flash (Alert)


You have reached this page most likely because you referenced an IBM Cloudscape URL that has been removed from the website. This page contains links intended to help you find information on Apache Derby sites as an alternative to the information previously posted at IBM. IBM Cloudscape was an unmodified repackaging of Apache Derby distributed by IBM through release 10.1.


On March 13, 2007 IBM announced that it would no longer produce IBM Cloudscape and would be phasing out support for releases 10.0 and 10.1 of the software. See the 'Products Affected' table below for a list of products and tools related to the IBM Cloudscape offering that have also been discontinued.
Documents at IBM sites are being removed and requests for those pages are being redirected here. The links below will help you to find content analogous to that which was formerly hosted on IBM servers.
If you are using IBM Cloudscape it is recommended that you upgrade to the most recent release of Apache Derby. The newly released versions contain many improvements over versions 10.0 and 10.1.
