> The Derby doco in the section "Shutting Down the System" at http://incubator.apache.org/derby/manuals/develop/develop12.html
says the following:
>     Typically, an application using an embedded Derby engine shuts down Derby just before
shutting itself down.
>     However, an application can shut down Derby and later restart it in the same JVM
session. 
>     To restart Derby successfully, the JVM needs to unload org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver,

>     so that it can reload it when it restarts Derby. (Loading the local driver starts
Derby.)
>     You cannot explicitly request that the JVM unload a class, but you can ensure that
the EmbeddedDriver 
>     class is unloaded by using a System.gc() to force it to garbage collect classes that
are no longer needed.
>     Running with -nogc or -noclassgc definitely prevents the class from being unloaded
and makes you unable
>     to restart Derby in the same JVM.
> Anyone have any objections to the recommendation of calling System.gc()?
