Look at the next exception. :-)

SQLException supports a chaining model and Derby uses it when multiple 
exceptions are involved or more context is needed that just the original 
exception. Typically the actual problem is the last exception in the 
chain, displaying the entire chain will make debugging issues much 
easier. Here's an example of how to walk the chain.

catch (SQLException e) {
   do {
     e = e.getNextException();
   } while (e != null);
