May be all system table names in the heading could have SYS schema
added to them. If you want, you can file a documentation improvement
request in JIRA.<br>
At the beginning of system table section, the following clarifies it
<u><b>Derby System Tables</b></u><br>
Derby includes system tables.<br>
You can query system tables, but you cannot alter them.<br>
<b>All of the above system tables reside in the SYS schema.</b> Because
this is not the default<br>
schema, qualify all queries accessing the system tables with the SYS
schema name.<br>
The recommended way to get more information about these tables is to
use an instance<br>
of the Java interface java.sql.DatabaseMetaData.<br>
