Subject [Howto?] Creating a new Derby database with ddlutils.
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2005 10:47:20 GMT
I want my ddlutils program to create a fresh database in Derby when 
starting, but I cannot quite figure out how to do this correctly.

I understand that I need to use something similar to:

        EmbeddedDataSource dataSource = new EmbeddedDataSource();

        DataSource ds = dataSource;

        Platform platform = PlatformFactory.createNewPlatformInstance(ds);

        platform.createDatabase("org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver", dbURL,

                "me", "mine", Collections.EMPTY_MAP);


but unfortunately the creation of the platform in order to get the 
createDatabase method, results in a Derby connection being made, which 
fails because there is no databases corresponding. 

I therefore have a chicken and egg problem :(

Is there any particular reason that the createDatabase method isn't static?
