I think there is no option available in derby to disable  logging . 
Might be good option for Derby to provide in future releases.

 1) you can acquire a table level lock  using  LOCK TABLE sql statement .
     ex: lock table t1 in exclusive mode
 2) There is also lock escalation mechanism in derby. When locks on
particular table  in a transaction reaches a threshold
values(default:5000). it automatically escalates  the row level  locks
to a table level lock. Lock escalation threshold  value can be changed
by setting derby.locks.escalationThreshold  property.   I would not
recommend reducing the threshold  if the tables are being accessed
