Sun Java DB is just a binary package of Derby but it's not DFSG compliant :
it's under the same licence as Sun ClosedJDK. And, as Oracle decided to stop
providing DLJ build (Distributor Licence for Java), Sun Java and Sun Java DB
can't be distributed in non-free.
So I think packaging Derby is more than welcome (ie. to provide same feature
set in OpenJDK as in ClosedJDK)
