Subject Re: Multiple instances of an application using same embedded database?
Date Fri, 05 Jun 2009 20:58:46 GMT
Have a look at the archives of this list. It has been discussed already that
you can use server mode similarly to embedded.
Your application may try first use existing database as client and if fails
to connect it may start server.

Actually your second application instance would benefit from accessing as
client because of derby server cache.
