Subject Clarification needed about starting ij
Date Fri, 11 May 2007 18:20:17 GMT
In several of the Activities in Working With Derby, the instructions
have the user type the following command to run ij

    java -jar %DERBY_HOME%\lib\derbyrun.jar ij

If the user has set up the DERBY_HOME environment variable, why can't
they just type "ij" to start the tool?

The instructions in the Getting Started Guide are a little confusing...

Please see the section "Ways to run the tools" in this file:
http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/getstart/cgsusingtoolsutils.html

In the second bullet, it indicates that the user should use the java
command when

"... you already have a Java executable in your path and you do not
want to change your path in order to run the tools"

What is not clear to me is:
1) Does this mean that the user does not set the DERBY_HOME
environment variable ???
OR
2) Does this mean that the user does not set the JAVA_HOME
environment variable ???
OR
3) Does this mean that the user does not set the PATH to DERBY_HOME/bin ???
