Subject Re: Debug Derby inside IDE

Absolutely! Derby developers do this routinely.

Derby is 100% pure Java, and so any Java debugger can be used to run Derby.

When I do this, I build Derby using Ant, with debugging enabled in the compilation,
and then I start Derby with my debugger.

Tell your debugger to use the main class org.apache.derby.tools.ij, then
you can issue ij commands and set breakpoints in the Derby engine using
your debugger.
