"sysinfo" - Checking Java DB (Derby) Installation

This section describes how to use 'sysinfo' to verify Java DB installation.

If you have Java DB installed as part of JDK 1.8 on a Windows system, you can use the "sysinfo" tool as suggested in Java DB documents to verify the installation:

C:\>"\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_45\db\bin\sysinfo"
