Hi François,

The derby.properties file is only read by the Derby engine and not by
tools like ij, and since derby.ui.codeset is a tools property, setting
it there wouldn't help. Since you start ij with -p ij.properties, it
should be fine if you put the property setting in ij.properties.

If it still doesn't work, is there any chance that the line that causes
the error starts with a "»" character?

Knut Anders
