In-memory Derby DB

Heard from David Van Couvering that Derby 10.5 will support In-memory databases. I was looking for this feature some 3 years ago in Derby - old mailing list archive. There was a prototype of some sort, but was kinda flaky. I'm very excited that 10.5 will have this built-in.

Hopefully this will ship with a future version of JDK6. Imagine what amazing things you'll be able to do then. This along with Map-Reduce in JDK7...ahh..shweet. (Geek alert!)
