Subject Re: How to configure Derby to be case-insensitive?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I was thinking that maybe I could do 
something like the following, but, that doesn't appear to be possible. 
Neither, MySQL or MSSQL seem to be able to do that either, but, their 
searches are case insensitive by default.

CREATE INDEX firstName ON Person LOWER(firstName);
