Hi Mike,

Here are two meanings for such a list:

1) The list of all possible databases which could be opened by the 
server. As Donald points out, the server can open any Derby database 
anywhere on the local file system, subject to file permissions and its 
own security policy. To compile this list, you would have to inspect a 
lot of directories.

2) The list of all databases currently opened by the server. This is 
information which Derby could supply although there is no API for it 
right now.

Were you thinking of (1) or (2) or something else?

Thanks,
-Rick
