Some database systems such as Apache Derby can easily be deployed and embedded within the web browser in a transparent fashion. However, the challenge is not integrating the database with the browser but rather how to provide a standard interface for web applications to make use of this database.
The presentation will describe the basic architecture and design of a particular implementation and will highlight benefits to existing and next generation of Web 2.0 applications. A demonstration of a working, practical solution will also be shown.
