Hi Kristian,


Thanks for your reply.  Here is additional info.  

I put the database files that come with the JPetStoreApp demo in the
home directory of tomcat, as described by the doc.

I didn't set the derby.system.home property with Tomcat.  Is there any
info on how I can do this.  I tried setting the

Environmental variable DERBY_HOME from (on windows) from where I bring
up Tomcat, but it didn't work.  Thanks ahead.
