At least, no without large efforts (like creating a new table, migrating 
all data to new table, dropping constraints & table, creating a table 
with correct columns, copying data back, recreating constraints...)

So is still necessary to develop in another database of preference (to 
get speed and productivity), then migrate to Derby... and cross fingers 
to not need change anything after app is in production, because changing 
a column on a table with million of records take hours... and need too 
much attention to not make mistakes, then I give it up. Forget. I can't 
deal with Derby in production, not now... I'll be very happy when this 
would be possible.

Anyway, it's a great database... work like a charm in static database 

Sorry by the rant,
