InstantDB is now part of Enhydra, but is still a free download. See http://www.instantdb.co.uk/ . HypersonicSQL is available from http://hsql.oron.ch/ .

What's the benefit of pure java db? Aside for the obvious portability..just looking for insight.

aside from portability? probably not much. But let's look at portability:
odds of placing Oracle Personal Edition onto a PalmOS device: nil
odss of placing a pure Java DB onto same device: wouldn't be surprised if someone hasn't done it.
Inprise's JDataStore, Informix's Cloudscape...there are a lot of pure java DB's coming out. Their target seems to be the local datastore arena. No more temp files, CSV files, properties, etc. Store everything you need in the DB. Replication? no problem, pack it up, ship it out to other copy of Java DB. Since it's not trying to play Oracle, you get a lot of flexibility in these terms.
Should you replace Oracle, DB2, Informix, MSSQL? No.
