I am writing an application which is using Derby as an in-memory DB:

        m_connection = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:derby:memory:testdb;create=true");

In that application I am also starting the NetworkServerControl:

        try {
            NetworkServerControl server = new NetworkServerControl(InetAddress.getByName("localhost"), 1527);
            server.start(new PrintWriter(System.out));
        } catch (Exception e) {

My application seems to run happily, creating and populating tables. All the tables are well visible from the inside the app, for instance after "CREATE TABLE" called,
this returns cnt=1:

Statement statement = m_connection.createStatement();
        ResultSet rset = statement.executeQuery(
        int cnt = -1;
        if (rset.next()) cnt = rset.getInt(1);

However, if I try to connect with another DB client (currently I am using Aqua Data Studio and it's configured to connect to jdbc:derby://localhost:1527/testdb;create=true), it connects, but the tables created in memory are not visible (while SYS tables are):

So, why could it be that in-memory tables aren't seen from the "outside" and what can be done to make them visible?

Much appreciated!
