Hi David,

I would recommend this tutorial if you are using Netbeans.

I think you maybe be missing the toursdb demo directory as I don't recall it being bundled with the appserver.

What you could do is download a more recent version  ( of Java DB directly from the Java DB portal to use instead of which is an old release - toursdb will definitely be in there.

If you are using netbeans, you can verify if derby.jar is added a part of your project classpath / library - check under your project's properties (libraries category)

specified in the tutorial for the first example. I downloaded appserver/derby/netbeans 2 days ago. The derby version seems to be I am able to create databases, tables, connections etc in netbeans. Do I need an older version of the tutorial?

ps my real problem is ClassNotFoundException on Class.forName("org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver"),

(or if i skip this step (unneccesary according to recent doc.), i get no suitable driver found on DriverManager.getConnection())

even though derby.jar is in my classpath according to sysinfo.
