Pay attention to Note 4965 about change to conversion from BOOLEAN to CHAR 

If you use setBoolean() or setObject() with a CHAR(1) datatype you must 
change your code and use setInt() or Derby will try to store "true" or 
"false" strings.

I never undertsand why we need to accept "breaking code" releases...

It should have been possible to keep compatibility with an extra parameter 
for those of us who care more about stability than "JDBC compliance".

May be we could conclude that setBoolean is finally useless...
