This URL will not work with Network server but it will work with Derby
embedded driver.

The syntax of the URL that is required to access the Network Server
with network client driver is:
jdbc:derby://<server>[:<port>]/<databaseName>[;<URL attribute>=<value>

This URL has the right syntax to connect to Network Server using
network client driver.

For embedded driver URLs, you may refer to Section 'Database
connection examples' in Derby Developer's Guide at
http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.1/devguide/derbydev.pdf. For
Network Server URLs, you may refer to Section 'Accessing the Network
Server by using the network client driver' in Derby Server and
Administration Guide at

I hope this helps.
