Hello Paul,

No, Derby doesn't support the array data type [1].
I'm not aware of any plans to support it.
You're welcome to add a RFE to track any efforts of implementing support 
for it:


[1] http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/JDBCSupport - this is getting a bit 
outdated. For instance, I believe all Clob methods are now supported in 
both drivers. I'll see if I can update the page. Others are free to 
contribute as well of course :)
