I'm not sure that HSQL provides a datasource that can be used by Tomcat.

However, I would not bother looking further.  

You should not be using HSQL for anything other than a bit of development or testing.  If you're in dev/test and trying to get the SQL macro to work, that's fine, but irrelevant because when you move to production, you won't be on HSQL.   So you should get your dev/test system hooked up to an appropriate test database to do your dev in a production-like environment.

If you're using HSQL in production, you need to forget the macro and work on your most important task - converting to a supported database.

Iam currently using 30 days trail version. It is not for production purpose. Please let me know how can I get the values for the embedded hsql datbase in to the pages?

My instinct is still to tell you not to bother. If you're writing in dev for eventual production use, you should be using the target database. But, if you insist on wasting your time, I think you can do it by following the instructions for mysql, but replacing the mysql driver class with "org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver" and the url with jdbc:hsqldb:mem:.
