Looking more closely at the tutorial, it does instruct you to download  
at least, so I am ok with using the newer capabilities and 
agree it would be nice to point out the derbyrun option.

Yun, could you please file an issue for tutorial improvements and attach 
a patch with your change, plus add the derbyrun option?  Make your patch 
from the website root so the full path will be there instead of just the 
directory where the change was made.
