Subject Re: Derby JDBC Embedded Driver, Prepared Statements, and Indexes

I believe that no index is actually created on MyTable, only on
AnotherTable.  From the one query below it seems like you want
an index on (fk asc, date_millis desc).  But if you run other
queries then other indexs may make more sense.

I am not sure exactly what is going on with your performance 
measurements, it has the feel of comparing compile time vs execute
time and/or cached table data vs uncached table data.

Could you explain exactly how you get your performance measurement, it
is clear below with the SQuirreL example but not with the java code.  The
results have the feel of comparing compile time vs. execution time of
a prepared statement and/or cached db vs. not cached db.  Note that once 
a query is compiled it is cached,
so you may be saving compile in squirrel without knowing it if you are
leaving the db booted and the query was sometime compiled what squirrel.
