But that shouldn't cause an error or even throw an exception.

If the database already exists and you open a connection to that database with 
CREATE=TRUE, then you will only get a warning message. And that isn't even 

Well, maybe I shouldn't say that..... There could be a bug ...

I'm working with Derby using the embedded framework and in my application, I 
have a -init command line option.  Here I open the connection with 
CREATE=TRUE and then check the warnings. If I get a warning, then I know the 
database already exists in some state. I then go to the SYS.SYSTABLE (joined 
with the SYS.SYSSCHEMA table) to get all the existing tables in the schema 
and then drop them. (Then the schema too). After this clean up, I call my 
initDB method that creates the schema and tables.

This works for me, although I'm doing this within a java program and not a 
shell script.

If you try my little program, it should solve this.
