Hi Susan:
:-) You for valuable contribution to my learning curve!
According to Brian Leonard's Blog here are the steps
for starting the Derby Server:

  1. Download the latest official Derby release (10.1.2.1 at the time of this writing) and extract the archive.
  2. Set the DERBY_INSTALL environment variable to point to your Derby installation location. For me this is D:\db-derby-10.1.2.1-bin.
1.+2. = done.

Start the Derby Server
  1. Open a command prompt and switch to the $DERBY_INSTALL/frameworks/NetworkServer/bin directory.
  2. Execute the setNetworkServerCP script, which sets the necessary Derby jars on the classpath.
  3. Execute the startNetworkServer script to start Derby. You should then see something like the following:



1. Here are the files in bin:
[dan@localhost ~]$ cd /$DERBY_INSTALL/frameworks/NetworkServer/bin
[dan@localhost bin]$ ls -l
total 136

-rwxr-xr-x  1 dan dan 1543 Nov  2 13:44 startNetworkServer.bat
-rwxr-xr-x  1 dan dan 1699 Apr  5 09:37 startNetworkServer.ksh
-rwxr-xr-x  1 dan dan 1702 Apr  5 09:35 startNetworkServer.ksh~
-rwxr-xr-x  1 dan dan 1806 Nov  2 13:44 stopNetworkServer.bat
-rwxr-xr-x  1 dan dan 1697 Nov  2 13:44 stopNetworkServer.ksh

-rwxr-xr-x  1 dan dan 1255 Nov  2 13:44 sysinfo.ksh

2. Executing setNetworkServerCP results in
[dan@localhost bin]$ ./setNetworkServerCP.ksh
[dan@localhost bin]$
i.e. 'nothing' (visible)

3. Executing startNetworkServer results in
[dan@localhost bin]$   ./startNetworkServer.ksh
./startNetworkServer.ksh: line 56: /usr/java/bin/java: No such file or directory[dan@localhost bin]$

I attach the setNetworkServerCP.ksh and startNetworkServer.ksh files
My present PATHs and CLASSPATHs are resp:
PATH
[dan@localhost bin]$ echo $PATH
/usr/java/jdk1.5.0_04:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/dan/bin
[dan@localhost bin]$
(I've added /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_04 to the PATH acc to your recommendation)
CLASSPATH
[dan@localhost bin]$ echo $CLASSPATH
/home/dan/mysql-connector-java-3.1.10.tar.gz_FILES/mysql-connector-java-3.1.10/mysql-connector-java-3.1.10-bin.jar:
