Did so, Kathey, but got the same error...

maybe I can't use URL=jdbc:derby:memory:testdb;create=true

in 10.2 and 10.3?

Hello, Kathey:

thank you for prompt response.

I was running 10.6. Upgraded to 10.7 and encountered the same NPE.

Downgraded to 10.3 and 10.2 but got a different error
Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:derby:memory:testdb;create=true

What could be a problem there?

Older versions do not have driver autoloading.  You will need to add:
Class.forName("org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver").newInstance();  to your code in the beginning to get the driver loaded.
