Thanks everyone for recommending this tool. It was exactly what I was
looking for.

small and compact.
No excessive libraries and dlls needed, just the jar file.
I can even embed the hsqldb.jar in my into my apps jar file and that's
all that needed for distribution, no seperate files to maintain


Thanks again
