Hi Daniel,

The error  above shows 'directory', was that in the url that was used. 
You need to just give the path to the database.
I just tried the following: successfully:

Thru ij:

C:\temp>java org.apache.derby.tools.ij
ij version 10.1
ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:c:\temp\my new dir\a temp\b temp\spdb;create=true';
ij> disconnect;
ij> exit;

C:\temp>java org.apache.derby.tools.ij
ij version 10.1
ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:c:\temp\my new dir\a temp\b temp\spdb';
ij> create table t(id int);
0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
ij> disconnect;
ij> exit;

Thru a small Java program:

            System.out.println("Driver Loaded");
conn=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:derby:c:\\temp\\my new dir\\a 
temp\\b temp\\spdb");
            System.out.println("Connection obtained");
        }catch(Exception e){
            System.out.println("Error "+e);

Driver Loaded
Connection obtained

Both the connections were to the same database..
Can you post more details about the issue you are facing.
