Subject Is it possible to force read-only mode?
Date Wed, 15 Jun 2005 01:31:59 GMT
For a certain reason, I need the ability for two applications to access 
the same physical database.  I have been lead to believe that this is 
possible if the database is opened in read-only mode.

I'm wondering if there is a way to do this without having to package 
things up in a JAR file, but rather through some kind of connection 
attribute?  I don't think we can use the classpath either, as our 
application is already running at this point in time.

Our databases are fairly large, and I don't want to add extra processing 
time by having to compress several GB of data into a JAR file.  I've 
tried setting the directory to read only, but Derby seems to be able to 
put the lock file in it anyway. :-)
