Yes, you can use relative paths in embedded mode.

For example, if you change it to 'jdbc:derby:vsjdb' Derby will look for
a database called "vsjdb" within either the directory from which you
started your embedding application (same as the Java "user.dir"
property) (default) or the directory specified by the property
derby.system.home, if set.
