There are several ways to start the network server from Java code. The 
Derby Server and Administration guide [1] describes at least two ways in 
the topic called "Starting the Network Server from a Java application":

(for Derby 10.3)

Using the org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl API [2] probably 
gives you the most flexibility.

If you want to start the server as a separate process instead of 
embedded in the same JVM as your application, you can use Runtime.exec() 
calls from your Java code.
