ColdFusion 8 ships with an embedded Apache Derby engine, which is used by the ColdFusion example applications, and can also be used for your own applications (and indeed, is used for all example applications in the CF8 edition of ColdFusion Web Application Construction Kit).

You can check out Charlie’s collection of explanations, answers, and links at his Getting Started with the Apache Derby Open Source Database in CF8 page.
