 From Derby-2071 I can see that accessing classes from 
"org.apache.derby.iapi.services.io" in another jar can cause you a 
sealing violation.

Also I found

"If you try to load a class in a sealed package from another source 
other than the JAR file in which the sealed package lives, the JVM will 
throw a |SecurityException|."

here http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/j-jar/#N101D6 as the last 
line in the Package sealing sub-header.
