If you don't specify location as described in my previous post, the databases are created in "user.dir" system property i think. If you want, you could dynamically compute a path name based on "user.home" and you could always expect it to be in the user's home directory for example.

Thank you for reading my post.
Where derby create each database directory ?
It looks that there is no standard data directory (like mysql )
I tried to build database with Netbeans Database manager , it placed database somewhere in netbeans home
i tried to build using IBM derby workbench , it put database directory in some other dir ....
Is there any mechanism to tell derby server to look at One Directory for its databases ?
for example look under e:\derbyData\ for all database names ?

if it is not possible , how i can connect to a database which is located in c:\document and settings\legolas\legData¬  by using network driver ?

Thank you.
