Subject Re: Interfacing with embedded derby from an outside process/shell
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2017 16:45:42 GMT
No, that is not supported using the embedded driver only.

You either have to shut down the application, or connect using the network
driver (while the application itself connects using the embedded driver).
The "embedded server mode" is described at [1] and in the admin guide.

Do you need the application to be up while you interface with the database
