As you  mentioned to test recovery we need to  exit from the test 
without shutting down
the database and reboot the same database and then verify that the data 
is as expected after recovery.
This is done storerecovery suite by using a suite leve property called 
'usesystem' .  When this property is
set  tests does not cleanup the database after  successful completion.   
To test a particular
recovery scenarion , one needs to add  a test that  generates the 
transacton log   and another test
that performs the recovery and verifies that the database is in the 
expected state:

For example to test the max log number change, I added :
store/ MaxLogNumber.java    :  creates the database and does some DML 
store/MaxLogNumberRecovery.java :     connects to the database created 
in store/ MaxLogNumber.java
verifies the data is as expected.

I think it is good idea to make these tests run on different database 
than the default 'wombat', otherwise
it will get hard to debug if there are failures.  database name can  be 
specified  using 'database'  property
like  database=jdbc:derby:maxlogwombat;create=true   in <testname> 
_app.properties file

 if  you run them as individual tests , database will get cleaned up  
after the setup  test and there will nothing
available  to test by the recovery test.  'usesystem'  property 
currently works at a suite level.

By looking at it briefly could not figure out why the following error is 
coming if you run it as suite.  One thing
I noticed though backup tests have following test  properties :
you need to create a file RecoveryAfterBackupSetup_app.properties  and 
put them there.  I really wonder
why  they are needed  ?  , may be test harness is modifying  user.dir
