When starting the JVM, set the -Dderby.system.home=<path> option.  
All connection URLs will then be relative to the given system home.

For example, a database created with with the name of "foo" in the
"/var/derby_data" directory can be accessed with a connection string
of "jdbc:derby:foo" so long as you have started the JVM with the
-Dderby.system.home=/var/derby_data option.
