Setting Up Derby (Java DB) in Network Server

This section describes how to set up and run Derby in Network Server mode listening client connections over the network.

Derby can be used in two modes:

I want to try the Network Server mode first. Here is what I did to setup Derby and start it in Network Server mode. Open a command line window and run the following commands:

herong> cd local
herong> mkdir javadb
herong> cd javadb

(on Windows)
herong> %DERBY_HOME%\bin\startnetworkserver

(on Linux or macOS)
herong> $DERBY_HOME/bin/startnetworkserver
... : Apache Derby Network Server - - (1913217) started and 
  ready to accept connections on port 1527

Cool. My Derby is up and running in Network Server mode on host "localhost" and listening connections on port "1527".

Note that I created a new sub-directory in my own "local" directory and started Derby from there. This sub-directory will become the Derby database home directory. Any new databases created on Derby server will be located in this sub-directory.
