Two thoughts:

1) Have you verified that the statistics are accurate for that table
and index? Derby only updates the statistics periodically, and under
certain circumstances. You can call SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_COMPRESS_TABLE
to force a re-update of the statistics, to see if that helps.

2) Have you investigated the Derby optimizer overrides feature?
