Make sure you say ";create=true" at the end of your connect statement, otherwise
Derby won't create the database.

You should see files named 'dbex.lck', 'db.lck', and 'service.properties', and
you should see subdirectories named log and seg0.

Inside seg0 you should see files like

c10.dat, c20.dat, c324.dat, c1a1.dat, etc.

These are "conglomerates", and to figure out which conglomerate corresponds
to which table in your database, you can use the SPACE_TABLE procedure:
