I noticed that there is 1 reference to sqlite3:

Other stuff on BioSQL is just really related to database configuration and
does not impair functionality (exception to a test case that really depends
on sqlite3).

I suppose that a "default" DB with Jython would probably be JavaDB (aka
Apache Derby)? It is available as a default on the Sun/Oracle JDK (though
not the JRE).

I could go ahead and have a try at evaluating the portability costs for
sqlite3->javadb. In theory it should be easy (
