Hi Jason,

There is no way to migrate ownership of schema objects from one user to 
another. In particular, there is no way to migrate the ownership of the 
database from its creator to another user. However, you may be able to 
accomplish much of what you want by GRANTing sufficient privileges to 
the new user. You can certainly create new users who are allowed to do 
work in the database.

For more detail, please see the "Derby and Security" section of the 
Derby Developer's Guide: http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.3/devguide/

Hope this helps,
