The property is derby.system.durability=test

"While performance is improved, note that under these conditions, a 
commit no longer guarantees that the transaction's modification will 
survive a system crash or JVM termination, the database may not recover 
successfully upon restart, a near-full disk at runtime may cause 
unexpected errors, and the database may be in an inconsistent state."

Please evaluate if this property makes sense for your application or not 
before using it.
