Java DB (Derby) in the JDK 1.8 Package
This section describes how to use Java DB (Derby) 10.11 that included in JDK 1.8 package.
Java DB 10.11 free version is now included in the JDK package. If you have already downloaded and installed JDK 1.8, the Java DB is available in the %JAVA_HOME%\db folder. There is no need to download and install Java DB separately. For example, on my Windows computer, I have JDK 1.8.0_45 installed. The Java DB is located at "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_45\db\".
Now set the DERBY_HOME environment variable:
herong> set DERBY_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_45\db"
If you haven't installed JDK 1.8 yet. Please follow the JDK 1.8 download and installation tutorial presented earlier in this book.
If you have an old version of Java DB (Derby) installed, you should remove the old version and remove related environment variables. For example, I have JAVA DB 10.5.3 installed. So I need to remove the "C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaDB" folder.
