Hi All,


I am starting into Derby and I develop on Intellij IDEA with JDK 7.

I just want to create and start database. It seems very simple but the first and unique code row generate a exception.

Can you help me to understand and arrive to start engine Derby database in my program please ?


Here this is my code :

    public static void main (String[] args) throws IOException


        String dbName = "MoneyBack1";

        String user = "miltone";

        String password = "password";

        String connectionURL = "jdbc:derby:" + dbName + ";create=true;user=" + user + ";password=" + password ;

        String createString = "CREATE TABLE operation " + "(operation_ID INT NOT NULL GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY " + " type VARCHAR(32) NOT NULL) " ;




            Connection connexion = DriverManager.getConnection(connectionURL);

            Statement statement = connexion.createStatement();





        catch (Throwable e)





DriverManager.getConnection throw a exeception always.

I’m using JDK 1.7.0_10 so then I don’t use ClassName methods for bring driver into memory.


Thank a lot for all helping.
