YOu can try to add Class.forName("org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver") 
in the app before trying to connect, unless you have a recent Derby 
version in which case it shoul dnot be needed. Autoloading of the driver 
was introduced in Derby 10.2.
If you have a Derby version newer that 10.2, it sounds like a CLASSPATH 

If you run this command with the same classpath as you app, what do you see?

It should the jar versions found on the classpath.
