Puzzling documentation about the URL to a database on the classpath

                 Key: DERBY-5612
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5612
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas

The "Accessing databases from the classpath" section of the Derby Developer's Guide says that
you can access a database on the classpath by putting a forward slash in front of the database
name (and then adding other path legs as needed). I don't find that it works this way. I ran
the following experiment:

1) I put a database called nast in the testRun/extin subdirectory of the current directory.

2) Then I put testRun/extin on the classpath.

3) Then I tried connecting to the database with various URLs.

The following URLs could not find the database:

connect 'jdbc:derby:/nast;user=KIWI;password=KIWI_password';
connect 'jdbc:derby:nast;user=KIWI;password=KIWI_password';
connect 'jdbc:derby:classpath:/nast;user=KIWI;password=KIWI_password';

But the following URL found the database:

connect 'jdbc:derby:classpath:nast;user=KIWI;password=KIWI_password';

This is not what I expected from the documentation in the Developer's Guide.
