This might be reaching too far, but in playing with this this week,
(before hitting the error log show stopper)
I was thinking that rather than just providing samples on how to load
Derby in a classloader, it  would be really
nice to offer some  sort of API to make it  really simple to load derby
given an URL[]   and an easy way to get
DataSources from it.  Might  it  be possible to integrate this  into
your  an API somehow, perhaps with a set method
that takes the URL  string specification of the directory where Derby
is  installed and a DataSourceFactory that is
initialized with  the server instance?
