andersmo in the #derby irc room figured this out for me:

First, when jar-ing a db directory it was necessary to jar from one  
level up and not the db directory itself.  For example, if the db,  
named myDB, is in /data/myDB, it is necessary to jar the /data  
Next, set the jar containing the db on the classpath and connect to  
it using the following connection string:

Thanks again andersmo.
