This was a disappointment, because I wanted to develop a Derby application that may switch
between the two drivers.

I guess the problem here is that many of the properties has to be set
when the Derby is started.  In the embedded framework this is done on
the first connect.  In the client/server framework, I guess Derby is
started before the first connect.  Hence, it will be too late to set
the properties.  In my opinion, the ClientDriver should throw an
exception if it is not able to set a property.
