Approach 1: Per-test-class setup and teardown. Junit has mechanisms exactly for this.
Approach 2: Package the setup stuff in a class, and use a static class member during testing.
Bonus points if you register a shutdown hook for teardown (but if you simply recreate the
Derby db for every test run, you don't need this).

Nothing of this is Cayenne-specific.
Which means it applies to anything else that might take too long to set up: Tomcat test servers,
virtual machines with FTP server, or what else you might have.
