Hi Lin -

The few times I have seen a NullPointerException while trying to start a 
Derby database have been caused by the Derby embedded driver being 
loaded by multiple classloaders in a JVM.  Could it be that your JSP is 
causing the embedded driver to loaded?  Isn't it true that the server 
wide datasource should be starting the database when Geronimo starts 
rather than this happening when the JSP is called?

The fact that this fails with version 1.1 and not 1.0 might be because 
of classloader changes that were implemented since 1.0. 

Any thoughts on this theory from people knowledgeable about the the 
Geronimo 1.1 JSP classloader hierarchy?
