Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-2136) Can't set system directory with derby.system.home for Network Server

Can't set system directory with derby.system.home for Network Server

                 Key: DERBY-2136
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2136
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation, Network Server
            Reporter: Frederik
            Priority: Minor

I'm a total newcomer to Derby. Decided to play with it today after reading http://www.regdeveloper.co.uk/2006/11/08/java_database_derby

I want to use the Network Server deployment mode. For determining the System Directory (which
holds properties file and the database directories, etc), I understood from docs (e.g. http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.2/devguide/cdevdvlp27610.html)
that I should set derby.system.home. 

I tried (using the newer scripts in $DERBY_HOME/bin)
export DERBY_OPTS=-Dderby.system.home=/data/derby 

but that failed to set the system directory properly (as witnessed by "NetworkServerControl
sysinfo"). It was using current directory when starting derby.

I finally discovered that it works if I do 
export DERBY_OPTS=-Duser.dir=/data/derby 

That seems to be either a bug or a docbug to me. 

(Almost all docs are using the scripts in $DERBY_HOME/frameworks/NetworkServer/bin instead
of the newer ones in ./bin ; except for http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.2/getstart/ and
the mention in 10.2 release notes)
