All,

I may of found a bug with starting derby through the NetworkServiceControl class. With the clients maven repository jars are <name>-<version>.jar, we use an ant script to start/stop and create databases on our development machines. I first found that with ant when we would start derby it would crash. I then tried to start derby from the command line.

Machine is Windows XP
Java 1.6
Derby 10.8.2.2
Ant 1.8.1

Here is the failing command:
java -classpath "C:\tmp\derby-10.8.2.2.jar;C:\tmp\derbyclient-10.8.2.2.jar;C:\tmp\derbynet-10.8.2.2.jar;C:\tmp\derbytools-10.8.2.2.jar" org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl start -h localhost -p 1527

produces error: 
Cannot find derbynet.jar on the classpath.

successful command:
java -classpath "C:\tmp\derby.jar;C:\tmp\derbyclient.jar;C:\tmp\derbynet.jar;C:\tmp\derbytools.jar" org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl start -h localhost -p 1527

Thanks,
Nick
