I also like the Halley's recommendation. Another approach to help the 
users understand errors better might be to document the errors and 
explain in more deatail what would be possible causes/solutions for a 
particular error.

I like this one, it is more clear.

the derby.foo.logDevice property is set to the correct location.")

I think additional explanation is not  really required. User will see 
this error only when the s/he uses the logDevice attribute on the URL.
