Hi Sekhar,

In many databases (including Derby), database restoration is considered 
to be a tool for disaster recovery. It is run only after a catastrophe, 
when the database is unusable and no-one should be connected to it. Can 
you explain the use-case you are trying to support by restoring on top 
of an already functioning, usable database? Maybe there is a simpler 
workaround for the problem you are trying to solve.
