Maybe the thread's interrupt flag is still on? Derby doesn't clear the
flag when it detects that it has been interrupted, so if you retry
database operations in the same thread after receiving this exception, I
think you'll continue to see that the operations are being interrupted
until you clear the flag, for example by calling Thread.interrupted().

Maybe you can get it to fail by manually interrupting the thread before
doing some db operations. The following code fails with a 08000 error on
the rs.next() call in my environment:

Connection c = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:derby:memory:db;create=true");
Statement s = c.createStatement();
ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery("select * from sysibm.sysdummy1");
