Hi Delin,

I think that on Windows the CLASSPATH variable shouldn't contain double
quotes, even if the directory name contains a space.

The following seems to work for me:

C:\Users\khatlen\wwd>set CLASSPATH=c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_25\db\lib\derbyclient.jar;.

C:\Users\khatlen\wwd>java WwdClient
org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver loaded.
Connected to database jdbcDemoDB
 . . . . creating table WISH_LIST
Enter wish-list item (enter exit to end):

Hope this helps,

Knut Anders
