Check out Lance Bader's developerWorks article
"Integrating Cloudscape and Tomcat: A cookbook for adding the database
manager into the servlet container".

His third scenario ("enterprise") defines a JNDI datasource. There are
two caveats. First, he did this for Cloudscape 5.1 -- he says he's
updating the article for Derby, but doesn't know when he'll finish it.
Second, he uses the network server for this scenario -- but it should
work for embedded as well. What might be of most interest to you is his
Tomcat config information.  (His "casual" scenario work fine with Derby
with a few changes, but it doesn't use the connection pooling you're
interested in.)

For the second question, you can put the database wherever you like,
then reference the complete path to it in the connection url. For
example, I have a database in this physical location on my machine:


Here's the connection url I use to connect to it:


I hope this helps. If you get it working, please let us all know!
