Setting Up Java DB (Derby) in Network Server

This section describes how to set up and run Java DB in Network Server mode listening client connections over the network.

Java DB can be used in two modes:

I want to try the Network Server mode first. Here is what I did to setup Java DB and start it in Network Server mode. Open a command line window and run the following commands:

C:\>mkdir \local\javadb\databases

C:\>cd \local\javadb\databases

C:\local\javadb\databases>
C:\local\javadb\databases>
  \Progra~1\java\jdk1.8.0_45\db\bin\startnetworkserver

Security manager installed using the Basic server security policy.
Apache Derby Network Server - 10.11.1.2 - (1629631) started and 
   ready to accept connections on port 1527

Cool. My Java DB (Derby database server) is up and running in Network Server mode on host "localhost" and listening connections on port "1527".

Note that I created a new directory called C:\local\javadb\databases and started Java DB from this directory. In this way, C:\local\javadb\databases will be used as the database home directory. Any new databases created on Java DB server will be located in this directory.
