Hi Pavel,

 From a quick look at the code snippets you posted, it seems to me you 
are not connecting to the same database.
Removing "create=true" from the client driver JDBC connection URL should 
demonstrate that.

To use an in-memory database with the client driver (or a data source), 
you have to use the following URL:
jdbc:derby://localhost:1527/memory:testdb (or for instance 
I agree this isn't obvious, maybe some work can be done to improve it.

Also, there is some information about the in-memory back end at 

Hope this helps,
