Try running

"${JAVA_HOME}/bin/javac" ("%JAVA_HOME%\bin\javac" on Windows) instead of just
"javac". Alternatively, if you add the path to the bin/ directory of your java
installation to your PATH environment variable, for example:

Bash shell: export PATH=${JAVA_HOME}/bin:${PATH}

Windows cmd.exe: set PATH=%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%PATH%

then "javac" should work. The "Working with..." guide does not show this as far
as I can see, but I don't know if that was a conscious decision or not.

Your analysis is correct, this happens when the driver class (which is in
derby.jar) is not in the classpath. Did you (try to) execute the application in
a command window or via the IDE? I don't have any other suggestions than double
checking that the application is using the classpath you think it is using...

Does running sysinfo ("java org.apache.derby.tools.sysinfo") work?
