A Local Datastore for Firefox

, Dec 18, 2005

Cool stuff, obviously demo’d at ApacheCon during Tim Bray’s keynote:

Francois showed how you could use Derby as a local store for Firefox by talking to a copy of Derby via Firefox’s ability to talk to Java. His application was a simple tax app and he showed how you could fill in a form, quit (or crash) the browser and have that data returned to you when you restarted the web app.
