Hi Paulo,

You'll find the information you need in the developers' guide,
See 'Creating, Dropping, and Backing Up Databases' section:
http://db.apache.org/derby/manuals/develop/develop13.html#HDRSII-DEVELOP-42173

I have two questions on create an drop databases.
Do I have a command to drop a database?  Or do I need to "gently"
remove the directory of the database? I didn't find references to
this.

There is other way to create a database  than the
'.../newDatabase;create=true' at the connection string.?

Thanks
PJ
