Hi David,

You could take a look at the derby.stream.error.field property:


If you create a stream object which swallows whatever is passed in to
its write() method and put it in a public static field in the class
MyApp, like this

    public static final OutputStream DEV_NULL = new OutputStream() {
            public void write(int b) { }

then you can suppress the derby.log file by setting
derby.stream.error.field to "MyApp.DEV_NULL".
