thank you for your hints, I was doing something similar with huge 
effort, but after this experience, I invested some hours and switched 
back to hsqldb, this is---sorry to say---by far more convenient for 
development purpose. similar restructuring with hsqldb took me seconds. 
It is really impossible to develop with a database, where restructuring 
is not feasible, and at the moment I have to say, it is even worse to 
roll out with a database under such conditions.

I think I wait for the next release and will then probably change back 
to Derby. the hsqldb concept with the script file is just perfect for 
development issues.

I really hope for the next release of Derby...

thank you for answering!
