Subject Re: java.sql.SQLException: An internal error was identified by RawStore module.

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, ..... delete transaction log files from a database
that you ever hope to get a consistent view of again.  If you are really
getting a recovery error when trying to boot the database you may have
to resort to extreme measures if you have no backup to go to, but 
anytime you delete a file from derby data or log directly you have 
almost always insured that the database will be corrupt.  Sometimes you
can get lucky and some of the tables are accessible and you can copy
them out to a non-corrupt database.  Hopefully you
were only acting on a copy of the real database, and were just 

Were you getting recovery errors on boot when attempting to connect
to the database?

Also the best way to get more info, is to post complete dumps of 
derby.log for the various errors you are encountering.  Complete
stack traces, with logStatementText enabled gives a pretty good idea
what is going on.

Note that the "An internal error was identified by RawStore module."
is almost always not the real error - some error before it caused this.
I think fixes for this went into 10.2.
