No tutorial, but some working code:


This runs inside Tomcat and creates a new database the first time it is 
run, subsequent runs use the existing database.  The database runs in 
embedded server mode, so whilst Tomcat is running you can access it 
externally as well.

The database is initialised via SQL script files that are contained in 
the application WAR file, using the ij utility (derbytools.jar).  ij can 
be run from inside an application as well as from the command-line, and 
ij + SQL scripts is the easiest way I've found so far of setting up a 
database, because the SQL scripts can be debugged from the command-line 
before being embedded in the app.
