How do I install Java DB on a mac?

How do I install Java DB on a mac?

I'm using 1.6 jdk on my mac and working with netbeans. I want to work with a db to be embedded with my desktop software.

Any ideas on how I can achieve this?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "Java DB".

If you mean a database that Java can access, then you can just install MySQL.  Step are here:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/macosx-installation.html

If you want to bundle a database with your Java application and deploy that on a Mac, that's much more complex - is that what you're looking for?

If you find you haven't got

${JAVA_HOME}/db/lib/derby.jar

http://netbeans.org/kb/docs/ide/java-db.html

"Java DB is installed when you install JDK 6 (except on Mac OS X). If you are using Mac OS X you can download and install Java DB manually or use the Java DB that is installed by Java EE version of the NetBeans IDE installer."
