Are you starting Network Server with the NetworkServerControlControl API 
in the same JVM? If so,

I believe as a work around  you can deregister the autoloaded driver by 
shutting down Derby, e.g.
DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:derby:;shutdown=true")  and then set 
your system property and restart Derby with 

If you are launching a separate process, pass the system property on the 
command line as Kristian suggests.
