John H. Embretsen commented on DERBY-1086:

Please read the following thread from the derby-user mailing list and see if that solves your


In short, databases do not currently have to be stored in the same directory as the derby.properties
file, since you can specify database URLs relative to derby.system.home.

> As with (at least) version the configuration file "derby.properties" must be
located in the directory where all databases will be stored. It should be possible to have
this file anywhere in the filesystem for flexibility. Most projects which use Derby as one
component use a central directory where all configuration files reside. 
> Then, for startup of Derby there has to be a property which tells Derby where to find
the properties file, for example "derby.properties.file.path". If that property is not set
on startup the system might fall back to the current behaviour, i.e. try to find the properties
file in its database directory.
