Java DB is Sun's supported distribution of the open source Apache Derby 100% Java technology database. It is fully transactional, secure, easy-to-use, standards-based — SQL, JDBC API, and Java EE — yet small, only 2.5 MB. Java DB technology adheres to the JDBC and ANSI/ISO SQL standards. This means Java DB provides the functionality expected of a sophisticated relational database, including SQL syntax, transaction management, concurrency, triggers, and backups. It also means that it is easy to migrate an application using Java DB to and from other standards-based databases, such as PostgreSQL, Oracle and DB2. Java DB provides a number of security mechanisms including database file encryption, authentication through either external LDAP directory or built-in repository, and authorization. In addition, access to the database can also be controlled at read-only or read-write level. Java DB allows users to define triggers to ensure referential integrity. It also supports Java stored procedures and functions. It is Embeddable.

Doctrine ORM - Object relational mapper for PHP

Object relational mapper (ORM) for PHP that sits on top of a powerful database abstraction layer (DBAL). One of its key features is the option to write database queries in a proprietary object oriented SQL dialect called Doctrine Query Language (DQL), inspired by Hibernates HQL. This provides developers with a powerful alternative to SQL that maintains flexibility without requiring unnecessary code duplication.

HyperGraphDB is a general purpose, open-source data storage mechanism based on a powerful knowledge management formalism known as directed hypergraphs. While a persistent memory model designed mostly for Knowledge management, Artificial Intelligence and Semantic web projects, it can also be used as an embedded object-oriented database for Java projects of all sizes. It could also be used as graph database or as (non-SQL) relational database.
