>            Reporter: Oyvind Bakksjo
>            Assignee: Kim Haase

>         Attachments: DERBY-503-2.diff, DERBY-503-2.zip, DERBY-503.diff, DERBY-503.stat,
> Using Class.forName("<driver name>").newInstance() is the recommended way to load
and instantiate the JDBC driver, but the documentation does not contain the .newInstance()
> Pointers:
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.1/devguide/cdevdvlp40653.html
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.1/ref/rrefjdbc32052.html
> The EmbeddedDriver javadoc mentions it:
> "The JDBC specification recommends the Class.ForName method without the .newInstance()
method call, but adding the newInstance() guarantees that Derby will be booted on any Java
Virtual Machine."
