By "delete all the data base", I assume you mean delete the directory 
that was created when the database was created with the "create=true" 
flag. For example, given this connection URL:

   connect 'jdbc:derby:test;create=true'

Derby creates a "test" directory with all the Derby database files. 
Deleting the database is as simple as removing that "test" directory.

Could you tell users to not store their own files under the Derby 
database directory? that it is only intended for use by the Derby 
datbase itself? Instead they should choose another location.

When you say that you erase the cache files, which specific files are 
you removing?

Please don't worry -- it might just mean that we need to ask more 
questions to make sure we understand what you mean.
